Learning Concepts

Assessment Refers to the tools or devices used to measure learner achievement; Petty (1998) suggests it is:’ measuring the breadth and depth of learning’

Initial assessment
Measuring entry levels, initial or diagnostic Math’s and English and learning styles

Formative assessment Monitoring learning progress during a course. Its prime purpose is to provide feedback to the learner and the teacher so that achievement or performance can be improved

Summative assessment This type of assessment takes place at the end of the programme, course, module or unit of learning. It is designed to assess the extent to which learning has been achieved, the quality of the learners work and in some cases to assign course grades and final certification.

Self directed learning where the student takes responsibility for their learning

Constructivism A theory based on observation and scientific study – about how people learn. It says that people construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world, through experiencing things and reflecting on those experiences. When we encounter something new, we have to reconcile it with our previous ideas and experience, maybe changing what we believe, or maybe discarding the new information as irrelevant

Blooms Taxonomy of Learning The cognitive domain involves knowledge and the development of intellectual skills. This includes the recall or recognition of specific facts, procedural patterns, and concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills.

Inclusive learning Means recognising, accommodating and meeting the learning needs of all your learners. It means acknowledging that your learners have a range of individual learning needs and are members of diverse communities
Learning Concepts

Didactic Teaching
The actual instruction and much of the classroom time is teacher-centered and structured

Participative The approach is based on the key idea of making students active participants in classes rather than passive recipients as might be the case when they are exposed to more traditional lecture-based teaching

Designed to engage learners in the process of inquiry guided by the teacher and materials

It is information about what the learner has done well. Grades and marks are measurements

Mission It is information about what the learner needs to improve or correct. The feedback should look to the future and be positive with clear goals
Abraham Maslow
The theory suggests that the most basic level of needs must be met before the individual will strongly desire (or focus motivation upon) the secondary or higher level needs

David Kolb’s Experiential learning cycle The use of concrete experience to enable learners to reflect and critically think through experiences and then experiment and consider if their strategies work.

The process by which program objectives, teaching methods assessment methods, resources and learning activities are planned to cater for the needs of individual learners

Classify different ways people learn and how they approach information either visually auditory or physically.
