Optimizing Learning Objectives to Promote Student Retention

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learning objectives (LOs) are statements that typically presented immediately before a lecture is taught. LOs describe the skills and knowledge students should obtain by the end of lecture.
