Thank you, Amy, Conchita and Alan for sharing your views.
In the early and mid months of 2006, I did two courses, Postgraduate Certificate Course and [i]Postgraduate Diploma Course respectively[/i], and now the very thought galls each and every pore in my body that I wasted my time, money and energy in it. Believe me, it was nothing but a ---------------!( certain nouns and adjectives are better left unsaid!)
There were universes of lies in the books and the workshops I attended. According to them:
Aim is something you can never achieve, whereas objectives are achievable. A teacher cannot write in his or her planner the following words under the heading of aims:
Similarly, the teacher cannot write the following words under the heading of objectives in his planner.
- the students should be able to learn/ understand the process of…(learn/ understand are non-achievable)
You may rest assured that they did nothing but made planner writing more complicated for the teachers. Now the teachers keep thinking whether to write this (word) under the heading of aims or objectives!
In the end, I do hope I did not offend anybody. In fact, I did not mean to, but could not hold my frustration any longer. By the way, do you know how they worship SWOT analysis? :lol:
