All ‘subject’ learning, requires the attainment of knowledge, skills and processes. Unfortunately, in most curriculum documents, it is only the knowledge and skills that are explicitly identified. The omission of ‘process outcomes’ has significant implications on the thinking and learning outcomes achieved by our learners. Successful learning requires the knowledge of; and the ability to, progress through a wide variety of processes. Effective problem solving can be promoted through the use of a problem solving process; quality writing can be enhanced through the use of a publishing process; the ability to engage in effective, valid investigation can be improved with the use of an investigatory process; and the use of a technology process can advance the capacity to produce innovative products.
Processes provide learners with a picture of the ‘whole’ while enabling them to focus on the ‘parts’. Confusion and incomplete thinking is avoided; quality is promoted; self-direction, responsibility, accountability and autonomy are explicitly facilitated. What if learners were empowered with processes for learning?
