Curricular Objectives The first step in the model is to determine your instructional goals, starting with the mandated curriculum. In this stage, you determine what “new information and skills you want learners to have mastered when they have completed your instruction” (Dick, Carey, & Carey, 2009). Although in our explanation, ‘curricular objectives’ is listed first, the need for instruction will be determined by learner characteristics. Similar to what Morrison, Ross, Kalman, & Kemp (2011) describe as “needs assessment”, an analysis of learner characteristics will determine whether or not specific instruction needs to be planned for your identified curricular goals.
