Learning Outcomes

Things have come a long way in Learning and Development since the 1960s.

But there is at least one thing that we have clung on to, here at On Track Learning, and that is Bloom’s Taxonomy.

In the early 1960s, as part of a wider study, Benjamin Bloom identified six hierarchical levels that can be applied to achieving learning outcomes.

Each level builds upon the previous one, making it easy to identify and apply the right type of learning to the right level of need.

For example, we need to know something before we can understand it, and we need to understand it before we can do it, and so the model continues up to the ability to evaluate.

This work is known as Bloom’s Taxonomy. It is the model we apply when writing learning outcomes, thinking about evaluation and deciding what media to select.

The table below provides an understanding of the model and how you can relate it to examples of learning media:-

So when we develop a programme you can expect us to have a wide range of learning media in mind before we understand your requirements to see if this mix suits your set up, audience and culture, for example.
