Bloom’s Taxonomy: what does it involve?
Synthesis, the fifth level of Bloom’s Taxonomy, occurs when learners go beyond what they’ve learned, understood, applied, and analyzed, to create a product or develop a new method. Building, developing, formulating, and inventing plans and ideas are all part of the process.
The final level in the hierarchy of learning objectives is evaluation. This sixth level involves assessing and criticizing a concept or creation according to individually defined criteria. It entails judging, setting out arguments, criticizing, and justifying a position.
The human dimension is critical when it comes to learning cross-disciplinary soft skills. Managers must support team members during the learning experience and encourage them to invest in and engage with their training. Learner data supplied or collected by learning platforms (habits, personality, etc.) are also key to customizing training courses. Using data, you can ensure than learners stay “switched on” throughout the course.
Focusing on synthesis & evaluation
Synthesis and evaluation can involve designing a training course for trainers, or a skills development course for promising managers or leaders, for example. In these cases, fulfilling the fifth and sixth levels of Bloom’s model is key to ensuring success.
