Beyond Knowing Facts, How Do We Get to a Deeper Level of Learning? As educators across the country continue to examine the best ways of teaching and learning, a new lexicon is beginning to emerge that describes one particular approach — deeper learning. The phrase implies a rich learning experience for students that allows them to really dig into a subject and understand it in a way that requires more than just memorizing facts. The elements that make up this approach are not necessarily new — great teachers have been employing these tactics for years.

Marketing Place As you will be aware from your experiences as a consumer, producers rarely sell their goods or services directly to the person that consumes them. Marketing channels, or place in terms of the marketing mix, are the means by which interdependent organizations move products or services from the producer to the person that purchases or consumes the product. This is the basic role of distribution. Let us consider the nature of distribution by looking at a very simple example of how it works in relation to our everyday experiences. A basic example would be a tin of vegetable soup.

We want to capture the email when we make a Product Sale, when they make an Inquiry of us and when they request a Free Sample. Obtain Customers Email in Exchange for Value

The Assessment Uncertainty Principle In our system so much hangs on the value given to our assessments leading to qualifications. As we seek to measure learning with some degree of accuracy, we risk losing contact with the meaning of what the nature of the learning is. Our increasing need for measures that are reproducible, consistent and transparent decreases our capacity to accept the inherent uncertainty in the whole enterprise. In our attempt to create a fair system where everyone knows what the standards are, we impose a framework that is outwardly rigid and linear relative to the fuzzy, dynamic nature of the processes we are measuring. In our classrooms we create clouds of learning – ephemeral, shape-shifting, finite but with indefinite boundaries – and then try to count them up like building blocks.

REAP - Resources > Assessment Principles: Some possible candidates Additional Resources: Below are three sets of principles that might be used to guide the design of assessment in higher or further education.
