This assignment, writing of learning objectives, will allow you to gain knowledge that is foundational to the teaching learning process and provide you with the opportunity to partially achieve the course learning outcome: apply the teaching and learning process to a health-related situation in a systematic manner that reflects the principles of teaching and learning presented in this course. Supporting information to assist you in writing learner-centered objectives is addressed in the learning activities of Unit 4 and Unit 5: The Art of Writing Learner-Centered Objectives
