relating the cognitive learning theory to online learning


Could anyone suggest how I could relate the cognitive learning theory to online learning and learning in a learning centre?

Any help would be gratefully received.

thanks Felicity

  1. Give us your theory!
    What’s your cognitive learning theory? There’s a range of possibilities – Gagne, Bloom, Honey and Mumford, Kolb for example. Can you narrow the field a bit?

  2. Would like to discuss
    Hi Felicity

    I work in a learning centre and help to tutor online students. But this is a new area for me. It would be nice to discuss this can you let me know a bit more about what you want to achieve?

  3. errrrrr!
    The same practical steps apply as to other learning. Identify your aims, locater the barriers and design appropriately.

    To be honest I think you ask the wrong question. How do I reduce a learners’ effective filter. Now theres a question!

  6. Cognitive theory

    Why so restrictive in the choice of theory, or is cognitive theory crucial to your outcomes?

    I recently found a good document on instructional design and learning theory on the web. A ‘Google’ search for mergel.pdf should find it.

    It summarises all of the learning theories but doesn’t treat them in isolation. You may find it useful.

    Hope this helps


  7. Learning Styles & E-Learning/OLCs
    Despite all the talk about learning styles and E-learning and OLCs, there isn’t much out there in the public domain.

    I am currently writing a workshop on how to be a successful online learner and have gone back to first principles. I have taken the likes and dislikes from each learning style and related them to e-learning, coming up with a list of suggestions for things to do/approaches to take when learning online.
