Term Definition
objectives

the intended outcomes of teaching: statements of the knowledge skills and attitudes of these desired goals. They tend to be more specific than aims often involving the observable or the measurable. While seen as important for effective teaching their mechanistic and slavish use has been criticised as leading to a rigid approach which limits the dynamic exploratory nature of many learning experiences.
