So why should we have learning objectives in education modules? I know … sometimes they are less than exciting, and you want to grab the audience right away! However, there is a purpose to the learning objectives and they come from adult learning principles. At a high level we want to create a folder in your mind that is going to remember what you are learning and file it away in your memory so that in the future, it’s easy to recall. Also, when creating the education it helps the instructor to focus the content so that at the end, you will be able to take away what the learning objectives promised, and remove any unnecessary, extra content, that might take the course on a tangent.
