Visualising Learning Goals with the Quail Model
Botturi, Luca
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v20 n2 p248-273 2004
This paper introduces the Quail Model, a device for the classification and visualisation of learning goals. The model is a communication tool that can smoothen the discussion within a course design team, support shared understanding, and improve decision making. Its theoretical background mingles contributions from instructional design (Bloom, Gagne, Merrill) with the insights of an author of philosophy (Lonergan). The paper presents a literature review, the Quail Model and some examples. Reference to a demonstration application is also provided. (Contains 10 figures, 2 tables and 8 endnotes.)
