How learning outcomes assist in the development of CPD activities

Learning outcomes assist all people involved in developing activities. 

  • Providers – learning outcomes help articulate the goals that providers would like participants to achieve. Articulating goals helps providers to plan content, materials and assessments, and direct and motivate participants. 
  • Participants – learning outcomes give participants guidance on what will be addressed in the activity to direct their learning. Learning outcomes also describe the skills and abilities participants will develop from the activity, and help them determine the value of the activity. 
  • Facilitators – learning outcomes offer facilitators direction on delivering the content of their program. Learning outcomes give the facilitator information on what should be included and what needs to be achieved upon completion of the activity.
