The What and How of Learning

K. P. Mohanan, Tara Mohanan

By and large, most discourses on educational reform focus on pedagogies: how teachers teach and learners learn. They implicitly assume that learners need to learn a body of knowledge and the skills of application associated with that knowledge. What kinds of learning outcomes should we focus on beyond knowledge content and application? This question hardly ever gets any attention. ThinQ departs from this tradition by focusing on two strands of learning — inquiry and integration — as valuable learning outcomes of any education.
