Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning Domains: The Cognitive …

Well to answer the question that was originally asked of me via twitter – in my view, like the, the Blooms Taxonomy of Learning Domains still has practical use today, despite been initially introduced over 50 years ago.

Students require knowledge of Bloom’s Taxonomy in order to plan for their time well in exams.

There are several other taxonomies of learning that can help those designing instruction ensure that students have the underlying support to reach the desired performance level. It is less useful for those not designing instruction, Essentially students must remember relevant facts in order to understand details regarding the subject at hand. I personally find Bloom’s Taxonomy a bit more approachable than the taxonomies developed by Gagné but Gagné’s domains of learning and their associated taxonomies can offer additional detail and nuance for those developing instruction.

While many explanations of Bloom’s Taxonomy and examples of its applications are readily available on the Internet, is particularly useful because it contains links to dozens of other web sites.

There is perhaps more opportunity for this within one particular organisation, but even then I would proceed with caution. Different environments within the same company may demand different things from managers – even those that are classed as operating at the same level. Perhaps it really depends on what learning you are talking about – in your ‘team building’ example, it may well be that an organisation has pre-defined competencies that it would expect to see at different management grades, irrespective of the area of the business. In this case you may be able to make some common assumptions regarding the Blooms level that you should reach for each of those grades. However, if the learning is more specific to individual environments then this is going to be tricky (and potentially unwise).

Neither am I suggesting that this model should only be used in isolation. Developing an understanding of what we can take from this model, along with for example the Kirkpatrick levels of evaluation will help us design learning and evaluation strategies tailored to our own particular business needs. In my opinion, there is a connection between Blooms Taxonomy and Kirkpatrick levels 2 and 3. It is possible that the Blooms model might offer some suggestions of how you can gather evidence to demonstrate that learning () has occurred in the training environment and how this might be judged to have been transferred (or otherwise) into behaviour () in the workplace.
