Objectives: Whose Wants and Needs Are We Meeting?

When crafting objectives, who determines the targets? Are these targets absolutes? Do they shift? When and how do they shift? Whose wants and needs are we meeting? 

Join one of our ETLA faculty members, Dr. Noorlinah Mohamed in this critical reflection on goals and objectives in this Community of Practice session for teachers and educators. Dr. Noorlinah will share her experiences not only in lesson plan/curriculum objective design but also in reviewing the concepts, principles, and ideas that affect their decisions.

There will also be a short dialogue on the topic, and sharing on our upcoming drama pedagogy programmes including the Essentials of Teaching and Learning Approaches (ETLA) course.

This session is recommended for ETLA Alumni and those who are curious to find out more about the course. 

ETLA-Community of Practice

"Great Insights"

"[Useful] to hear experiences from like-minded people in the same industry"

"[I benefitted by] connecting with fellow educators and sharing of experiences"

SDEA’s Community of Practice serves as a platform for theatre practitioners and educators to come together to share best practices and new knowledge to advance professional practice. Each session focuses on a different topic of interest, and provides participants the time and space to reflect on their teaching practice, as well as share and learn from their peers in a casual, relaxed environment.
