The Application of Learning Theories to Communication Instruction.
Lashbrook, Velma J.
This paper attempts to draw applications from major learning taxonomies and theories Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives and Gagne's types of learning are considered in terms of their implications as diagnostic and evaluation criteria. Additionally, an attempt is made to operationalize these criteria behaviorally. Instructional strategies are drawn from Skinner's approach to operant learning, Banduara's psychological modeling, Bruner's approach to discovery learning, and Ausubel's conception of meaningful reception learning. These positions are viewed as complementary and integratable approaches to communication instruction. (Author/RB)
