Utilizing Shulman’s Table of Learning to Understand Learning in Professional Health Science Programs

Teresa Mortier, Jayne Yatczak


Understanding student learning in health science professional programs is both timely and relevant and is the focus of this article. The Table of Learning by Lee Shulman (2002) provided a tool for an interdisciplinary reflection surrounding student learning in clinical laboratory science and occupational therapy. Utilizing the taxonomy pieces, we were able to construct a visual representation of how students learn in these two programs. It is our hope that other health care programs may view this model as a template in their interdisciplinary Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) conversations.
