Understanding the Advising Learning Process Using Learning Taxonomies
Muehleck, Jeanette K.; Smith, Cathleen L.; Allen, Janine M.
NACADA Journal, v34 n2 p63-74 2014
To better understand the learning that transpires in advising, we used Anderson et al.'s (2001) revision of Bloom's (1956) taxonomy and Krathwohl, Bloom, and Masia's (1964) affective taxonomy to analyze eight student-reported advising outcomes from Smith and Allen (2014). Using the cognitive processes and knowledge domains of Anderson et al.'s revised taxonomy, we discuss the learning processes that underlie cognitive-based outcomes. We also describe the way the affective taxonomy developed by Krathwohl et al. contributes to understanding learning processes that promote affective outcomes. Through these analyses, we describe how learning occurs in advising and show that advising, as represented by Smith and Allen's eight defined outcomes, delivers the array of cognitive and affective changes presumed to constitute learning as articulated by these frameworks.
