Science Of Learning


Our Science of Learning approach summarizes existing cognitive behavioral and neuroscience research on how people learn, and connects it to practical implications for coaching and teaching. Our approach recognizes the importance of cross-pollination across traditional fields of study, drawing on many different methods and techniques to understand how learning occurs with the ultimate goal of optimizing learning for all. This include examples of learning in  Sports Vs Academics Vs Entrepreneurial Learning.

Another way to understand and categorize learning is by using Bloom’s Taxonomy. It include following 3 categories of learning taxonomy.

The cognitive domain (knowledge-based)


  • Knowledge.
  • Comprehension.
  • Analysis.
  • Synthesis.
  • Evaluation.
  • Application

The affective domain (emotion-based)


  • Receiving.
  • Responding.
  • Valuing.
  • Organizing.
  • Characterizing

The psychomotor domain (action-based).Eg Sports


  • Perception.
  • Set.
  • Guided response.
  • Mechanism.
  • Complex overt response.
  • Adaptation.
  • Origination
