Summary

The sequencing of learning objectives into a logical progression is an important part of the training design process. Once the learning objectives for a training session have been selected the next step is to put them in the sequence they will be taught to the participants. There are five stages for sequencing learning objectives, each of which works best for certain types of content and participants. Based on the previous stages of training design, you must now select a sequence for the objectives that is most appropriate for the particular course, the trainees and the organisational setting.

The manner in which you sequence the learning objectives can either make the learning easier or make it more difficult. Once the learning objectives have been sequenced, you have developed an instructional outline.

The aim of this unit is to help you understand how learning objectives are sequenced and to provide you with the opportunity to perform the sequencing process.

By the end of this Unit participants  will be able to:

  1. Define the term sequence and explain what it means
  2. Define inflexible sequence and explain what it means
  3. Define flexible sequence and explain what it means
  4. Define rules for sequencing and explain what they mean
  5. List five methods for sequencing learning objectives and explain what they mean
  6. Select an appropriate strategy for sequencing a set of linked learning objectives
