So far, we've looked at how to write learning objectives and how to plot them on the taxonomy table. In this module we will look at choosing learning activities that support your learning objectives.
Learning activities are unique to each course, and you have lots of options. It is beyond the scope of this tutorial to talk about all the types of learning activities you could choose, but we will give a few examples and show you how they would be plotted on the taxonomy table.
What are some options for learning activities?
It can be a challenge to choose learning activities that effectively accomplish your learning objectives. These examples of learning activities will give you an idea of learning activities for each cognitive process. Also, it is important to understand that, even though you are targeting a particular cell on the taxonomy table with an objective, your learning activities do not necessarily need to match up one-to-one in the same cell. In fact, using a variety of cognitive processes can be the most effective way to achieve one learning objective.
