Teacher resources: Dimensions of learning

Resources on information skills, research strategies, Web 2.0 and 3.0 teachnologies, apps


Dimensions of Learning is a comprehensive model that uses what researchers and theorists know about learning to define the learning process. Its premise is that five types of thinking - what we call the five dimensions of learning - are essential to successful learning. The Dimensions framework will help you to:

  • maintain a focus on learning;
  • study the learning process; and
  • plan curriculum, instruction, and assessment that takes into account the five critical aspects of learning.
