What do students really want for the university education?

3. Setting Up Objectives

Objectives make students realize what they will learn. Setting up objectives is also an important method for effective teaching. There are basically three instructional objectives, and split into types of objectives.

The above suggestions are particularly used for laboratory activities in my experience; however, it is useful for the lecture class, too. If students can refer to specific objectives during teaching and doing labs, it will be more effective.

Somatic and experience objectives will be mainly considered in physical science labs, but knowledge and skill objectives are important to make students reminded of what they are doing.
