Authentic learning

Description

Authentic learning involves complex, sustained real-world tasks. The aim of authentic learning is to have students develop professional and disciplinary expertise in realistic contexts.

Overview

Nine elements of authentic learning:

  1. Provide authentic contexts that reflect the way the knowledge will be used in real life
  2. Provide authentic tasks and activities
  3. Provide access to expert performances and the modelling of processes
  4. Provide multiple roles and perspectives
  5. Support collaborative construction of knowledge
  6. Promote reflection to enable abstractions to be formed 
  7. Promote articulation to enable tacit knowledge to be made explicit
  8. Provide coaching and scaffolding by the teacher at critical times
  9. Provide for authentic assessment of learning within the tasks. (Herrington n.d.)
