Bloom’s taxonomy is the classification of adult learning in the three domains of information processing: cognitive, psychomotor and affective. Understanding how adults learn will help me develop learning outcomes, use appropriate teaching tools and activities, and teach to the correct level required. The taxonomy also guides the assessment process so I will be able to measure the progress of the learner and the effectiveness of the curriculum. It is important to ensure that my curriculum exercises are focused and aligned with the domain that is best for learning the information. Step one in developing interesting, engaging, and valuable curriculum.
