Guidelines for Writing Learning Objectives in Librarianship, Information Science and Archives Administration.
Fontaine, France; Bernhard, Paulette
Intended for use as a practical guide by teachers of librarianship, information science, and archives administration, this guide includes exercises and explanations to assist in writing learning objectives in these areas. The examples presented relate to the various levels of training, and illustrate the diversity of topics in this subject area; however, the objectives indicated are not intended to be an exhaustive list of all potential objectives of a curriculum. The first part of the guide, which is designed to create an awareness of the importance of learning objectives in education, underlines the interdependence between objectives and the other components of instruction, and suggests a procedure for the precise formulation of objectives. The second part contains four worksheets, each of which is divided into eight or more sections. These worksheets provide definitions, explanations, exercises, and follow-up tests to help the user learn to write objectives. The worksheets are designed for use by students on their own or with the aid of a resource person, and may also be used for group learning. A 13-item glossary is included. A list of references is arranged under separate subject headings: (1) learning objectives--general works (18 titles); (2) learning objectives in librarianship, archives administration, and information science (44 titles); (3) documents consulted in designing the worksheets (34 titles); and (4) course planning (29 titles). A list of publications in the field of education and training concludes the guide. (SD)
