Reminder: How People Learn

sgts.ucsd.edu 4

How People Learn: Key Findings

1. Students come to the classroom with preconceptions about how

the world works. If their initial understanding is not engaged, they

may fail to grasp the new concepts and information that are

taught, or they may learn them for purposes of a test but revert

to their preconceptions outside the classroom.

2. To develop competence in an area of inquiry, students must: (a)

have a deep foundation of factual knowledge, (b) understand facts

and ideas in the context of a conceptual framework, and (c)

organize knowledge in ways that facilitate retrieval and

application.

3. A metacognitive approach to instruction can help students

learn to take control of their own learning by defining learning

goals and monitoring their progress in achieving them.

More than anything else, the best teachers try to

create a natural critical learning environment:

More than anything else, the best teachers try to

create a natural critical learning environment:

sgts.ucsd.edu 9

natural because students encounter skills, habits,

attitudes, and information they are trying to learn

embedded in questions and tasks they find

fascinating authentic tasks that arouse curiosity

and become intrinsically interesting,

natural because students encounter skills, habits,

embedded in questions and tasks they find

fascinating authentic tasks that arouse curiosity

and become intrinsically interesting,

critical because students learn to think critically,

to reason from evidence, to examine the quality of

their reasoning using a variety of intellectual

standards, to make improvements while thinking,

and to ask probing and insightful questions about

the thinking of other people. (Bain, p. 99)

In natural critical learning environments

students encounter safe yet challenging conditions

in which they can try, fail, receive feedback, and

try again without facing a summative evaluation.

Learning outcomes are valuable to

the students

o reveal what the instructor is looking for: no more guessing what understand means or what will be on the exam

o give preview of the next part of the course

o allow students to monitor their own progress (metacognition!)

o allow students to check theyve mastered the concept (especially when studying later)

sgts.ucsd.edu 13

Learning outcomes are valuable to

the instructor

o crystallizes what the instructor cares about

o helps the instructor create assessments

o helps the instructor select instructional strategies and activities
