Setting goals early in a course can help build a sense of purpose and motivation for students. Returning to those goals periodically to review progress is one way to emphasising students’ responsibility for their own learning.
Goal-setting can follow a Self Assessment or Reflective Journal activity using the Blog. Goals could be recorded in the Mahara Profile, which includes a section for personal, academic and career goals.
