To sum up
Setting learning objectives is a central activity for clinical teachers and the concept of pre-determined intended outcomes underpins most formal teaching, learning and assessment activities. Opportunities for setting learning objectives arise in formal, planned educational activities as well as in more informal ‘moment-to-moment’ situations. Clinical teachers can optimise teaching and learning opportunities that arise in daily practice, and support learners’ professional development, through an in-depth understanding of the programme of study in which the learner is engaged, effective lesson planning and a continuous monitoring of learners’ needs.
