TRO Sponsored Events Learning Objectives
When filling out the application for PCC’s for TRO Sponsored events, be sure to include 3-5 learning objectives that delegates will achieve by participating in your conference session. Learning objectives describe what each conference delegate will achieve by the end of your session. Include SMART Learning Objectives, which are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timely. e.g. “Each participant will be able to identify 3 benefits of obtaining a professional designation through Therapeutic Recreation Ontario by the end of the session.”
In the above example, the learning objective is:
Specific because it describes what must be completed i.e. identify benefits
Measurable, because it describes something that can be measured = 3 must be identified
Attainable, which should describe something that can be realistically achieved
Relevant or something that would motivate a delegate to achieve it = the number of benefits is both attainable, and something that the delegate would be motivated to achieve
Timely, which in the example above is indicated by “end of the session.”
See more examples from previous sessions below:
By the end of the conference session, each delegate will...
1. Identify 3 responsibilities of a Residents’ Council Staff Assistant.
2. Identify 3 major changes in obtaining the R/TRO designation beginning September 1, 2015.
3. Will be able to perform 5 seated exercises.
