Integrating Layered Delivery Within the Learning By Doing Model
Feedback form is now closed.
In our blinding desire to help and be professional, I believe that we  often do the students a disservice. We need to turn the tables and have them doing the work so we are free to guide their learning. I think every teacher no matter the teaching area, can turn students loose to explore, test, question and experiment their way to learning. Once students are doing that, the next step is to enrich the assessments.

When classroom projects are layered with multiple outcomes, students integrate and master many more skills for future application. Each assessed project delivers separate activities.  

  1. Workplace activities do not exist within an isolated vacuum. Most projects undertaken in the workplace are a blend of multiple skills.  Education requires outcomes to be clearly defined which has led to a careful listing of Learning Outcomes which can be easily identified and then assessed.
  2. As a result, assessments often target a single skill.
  3. The real world does not operate in this fashion.
  4. Students need to experience the integration of skills in projects now within the classroom so that they master the skill of integration before they enter the workplace.
