Term Definition
aims

statements of broad educational purposes or intentions. Objectives tends to refer to narrower more specific goals in terms of what a learner may be able to do as a result. Some critics view this as too tied to behaviourist theory while others such as John Dewey warned of the danger that a rigid adherence to pre-set aims may foster a mechanical approach to teaching.
