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