Theories and Principles for Planning and Enabling Learning (TPPELS)

In TPPELS students consider the use of Bloom’s Taxonomy (1956) in relation to ESD values, which is followed up by encouraging them to consider how they might use this model with their students to explore values relevant to their own subject specialism.

Also, alongside a session on classroom management in which behaviourist strategies are discussed, the concept of non-violent communication (Rosenberg, 2003) is considered as an alternative, humanist approach to behaviour concerns.
