Whole–Part–Whole Learning Model

The Whole-Part-Whole Learning Model represents a practical methodology for designing learning programs. The model honors general learning theory, the six Core Adult Learning Principles, and the Subject Matter Differences as presented in the more holistic Andragogy in Practice model. The whole-part-whole perspective is useful for the overall design of learning programs of any lengthtotal courses as well as for short learning experiences. It is simple enough that it can be used by learners to design their own learning experiences, by subject matter experts not having a deep understanding of the learning process who want to develop learning experiences for others, and a practical tool for experienced educational professionals.
