Integrating Revised Bloom's Taxonomy and Fink's Taxonomy of Significant Learning

The revised Bloom's Taxonomy is the most popular and widely used taxonomy for formulating expected learning outcomes in higher education. Among the three domains of learning, cognitive domain is the most established and well implemented as compared to the other two domains of learning namely; psychomotor and affective. Many find these two domains challenging to use in writing generic learning outcome statements especially relating to soft skills. The Fink's taxonomy of Significant Learning may be able to fill the gaps for these two domains of learning. 

Integrating the revised Bloom's taxonomy and Fink's taxonomy offers the best of the two taxonomies to aid educators in formulating and writing both subject-specific (hard skills) and generic (soft skills) expected learning outcomes. The integrated taxonomy created by Education Quality International (eqi) is presented below.
