A Bloom's Course on Planning
Planning from learning outcome to assessment using Bloom’s Taxonomy
Welcome to A Bloom's Course on Planning: Planning from learning outcome to assessment using Bloom’s Taxonomy. This is an introductory course to using Bloom's taxonomy of the cognitive domain for planning. The course should take you about an hour to complete. At the end of which you will be able to describe Bloom's taxonomy to a peer, some of its background and how you might use it. Specifically you will have a better understanding of the cognitive domain and how to use it in your planning, for a lesson, or a series of lessons from learning outcome to assessment.
The course responds to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at the Graduate and Proficient levels two (2.3.2) and three (3.1.2).
The course is divided into 4 shorter sections as follows:
- Introduction to the course and Bloom’s model
- The cognitive domain
- Bloom’s for planning
- Concluding comments and BONUS!
There is short workbook to follow along with the course, which you can download and print. Following along and completing the work book as you go, will give you a great reference and can serve as evidence of your engagement with the professional learning. And of course, as a useful resource for your future practice.
On completion, you will walk away with a sound understanding of Bloom’s taxonomy of the cognitive domain and how you might use it in your classroom to plan for congruent lessons that supports the learning needs of all your students. You will have reflected on what you have learned. And you will be continuing your journey to creating a more inclusive classroom!
