Writing Objectives for Health Related Instruction: A Self-Instructional Manual.
Lynch, Bonnie L.
Designed for instructors or students who will be instructors in health-related occupations, this manual provides basic instruction in writing behavioral objectives. While there is no table of contents, a list of nine objectives on page 4 is a guide to the manual's contents. The objectives state that upon completion of the manual the reader should be able to state the value(s) of using well-defined objectives; differentiate between "teacher-centered" and "learner-centered" objectives; identify the three commonly accepted components of objectives; describe selected formats for stating objectives in a given situation; categorize cognitive behaviors into knowledge, application, and problem-solving levels; identify affective behaviors; identify behaviors which require psychomotor skills; write educational objectives in behavioral terms; and describe how objectives are used in educational programs. The manual contains pre- and post-assessments, questions, and other written exercises the user is expected to complete. A reference list and verb lists for writing educational objectives in the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains are included. (LMS)
