Learning goal based instruction has by Danish politicians and centrally placed researchers been touted to be what, been touted to be what can ensure better day care, schools and education.
The idea of basing teaching on pre-defined learning objectives, is grounded in a political desire to get teachers and educators to focus on children's and students' learning outcomes, and not on the subject matter and activities of teaching.
Rather than take off in a subject matter, learning goal-driven teaching is based on competency-based descriptions of the behavior patterns, that children, pupils and students should be able to demonstrate after completion of education.
I have worked with and criticized the concept of learning objectives in a series of articles, and has most recently published the book FAQ on learning objectives on Hans Reitzels Forlag.
