Glossary »  affective learning

Affective dimensions of learning include emotional awareness, values and personal characteristics and virtues such as confidence, courage and resilience. They relate to the increasingly influential idea of embodied learning in which self, body and mind are reconnected so the body is experienced ‘as a source of effective knowledge, learning and healing potential’  (Payne 2014: 1). These aspects of affective learning are discussed further in relation to deep learning below. For our purpose in this chapter, the term ‘knowledge’ includes cognitive and affective (emotional, ethical, social, and so on) learning. (EFFeCT paper)
