Reviewing How to Develop Objectives and Goals - Exercise
Reviewing How to Develop Objectives and Goals
Duration: 20 to 25 minutes.
In this exercise, you will use your knowledge of creating objectives and goals to answer the following questions.
Keep in mind this scenario, from the previous lesson: You are working as an ID in your organization, and the head of human resources has come to your group with a specific need for the group to develop some training on working with difficult coworkers.
- What is the difference between a goal and an objective?
- In our HR training scenario, one of the goals is: Given a situation when the learner has to work with a difficult coworker, the learner will be able to resolve conflict and maintain a peaceful working environment. What are some objectives that could be derived from this goal?
- A goal is more general, a statement regarding the intention of the instruction, whereas an objective is more detailed, describing how the learning will affect learners.
- Answers will vary but objectives might identify how difficult personalities affect the workplace, describe the communication process, and list ways to handle conflict when it occurs.
