Anatomy Education Podcast

Professor Phil Newton is the Director of Learning and Teaching at Swansea University Medical School in the United Kingdom. In the third part of our learning theory discussion, Phil joins me to talk about behaviourism and its connections throughout all out curricula, with learning outcomes, Bloom’s taxonomy and feedback. And yes, we also talk about rats, dogs, pigeons, dolphin and Baby Albert.

Here are the papers we mentioned:

Constructivism is not a Pedagogy

A Pragmatic Master List of Action Verbs for Bloom's Taxonomy
