Key Concepts

Core Principle 4: Content is organized around key concepts and principles that are fundamental to understanding the key structure of a subject

Understanding is about making personal meaning of knowledge and seeing how it is used in real world application and problem-solving. When students have developed a good understanding of a topic, they will have acquired an accurate representation of the concepts and principles involved, which will facilitate effective and efficient retrieval, and subsequent application of knowledge.

As McTighe & Wiggins (2000) argue:

…an education for performance, based on understanding applied, is of the highest priority. (p.93)
