Models of Learning– Moving from Principles to Practices
Outcomes of Significance are demonstrations of learning that transcend the content details of academic course work. They manifest as the complex, context-based performance abilities (often called Life-Performance Outcomes) that are required in a wide range of life and career pursuits on which formal curriculum and student learning experiences should be firmly based.
