Identifying the correlation between learning objectives and educational goals is crucial in guiding students to take ownership of their learning. Educational goals are broader and long-term, whereas learning objectives are specific and short-term.
Fostering student ownership helps students to understand and set long-term educational goals to continuously monitor their own learning. This process allows students to participate in assessing their own progress and helps the teacher in adjusting learning outcomes.
