Learning is about expanding what we know in our heads. To see this as the entire scope of learning, however, is to adopt only the ‘learning to know’ pillar of learning, which provides ‘the cognitive tools required to better comprehend the world and its complexities, and to provide an appropriate and adequate foundation for future learning’ (see UNESCO website). Cognitive learning is part of teacher learning, but there are additional dimensions to the content of such learning which we turn to now under the headings of affective learning and learning through practice.  (EFFeCT paper)
