Appendix 4: A guide to writing learning outcomes
The standard practice is to write learning outcomes in the SMART format (Table A3.1).
Table A3.1. SMART learning outcomes
When developing learning outcomes, it’s useful to think in terms of this statement:
‘By the end of this activity, participants will be able to …’.
Choosing the correct verb is critical and must be tied into the activities. Unless participants are to be given opportunities to discuss, describe or analyse, these verbs should not be used in the learning outcome. Ensure content and activities are aligned to the learning outcomes. For example, ‘By the end of this activity, participants will be able to [action verb] + [outcome]’ is a useful general format for writing learning outcomes.
