Bloom's taxonomy has been widely used as a basis for instructional design and was updated in 1990 by Anderson and Krathal to reflect a current emphasis on active learning. We will only focus on the updated version in this course. However, a comparison of the original and updated version is provided in this wiki page if you would like to see how and why it was revised.
