Next week during PGCertHE sessions we'll firstly be backtracking a little to Planning to Teach and Study.
Remember Biggs' model of Curriculum Alignment? Kolb's cycle and Race's variation? Bloom's Taxonomy (CognitiveDomain) and Anderson's variation?
We suggested that these might be useful starting points to help us conceptualise our practice and to put initial reflection in action (in in what we deliver to our students and how we do it). Have a look at Brown's How Students Learn, pages 12-15
Any brief comments on the usefulness (or otherwise) of models and taxonomies of teaching and learning? For you, or generally.

Write a brief post in response giving some of your thoughts.
We're also going to be thinking about the nature of knowledge in our disciplines but more on that later...
We'll also be thinking about some of the different approaches to learning as are outlined in this article:
