Learning objectives are often an undervalued part of the design process, but they shouldn’t be. Well-written learning objectives tell your learners what you want them to know and do—clearly and concisely—and then help managers, leaders, and organizations measure their progress toward that knowledge and skill.

Be sure to join Nikki O’Keeffe, facilitator of ATD’s Essentials of Writing Impactful Learning Objectives, for an interactive discussion about practical techniques and best practices for writing objectives that are behavior focused and measurable.

During this webcast, you will learn about:

· the benefits of measurable and observable learning objectives
· a method to assist in structuring your objectives and simplifying the objective-writing process
· best practices for writing learning objectives.

When you join, bring along some of your organization’s current learning objectives, or a training project you are working on, as a frame of reference.
