Questioning Gagné and Bloom’s Relevance
AUGUST 2, 2011
I made this comment as part of the interview: It’s easy to get caught up in theories without really looking at whether the research support is there. Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction might be helpful as a designer, but they aren’t really supported; you can skip everything but practice with feedback without much change in results. As a follow-up question , she asked where I learned the above about Gagné and Bloom. Bloom’s Taxonomy. Neither did Bloom.
