This chapter establishes the domains of teaching as one of two “pillars of instructional technology” and offers the necessary grounding in the history and evolution of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor teaching. The cognitive domain encompasses intellectual objectives that deal with “the recall or recognition of knowledge and the development of intellectual abilities and skills.” The affective domain takes in individual “changes in interest, attitudes, and values, and the development of appreciations and adequate adjustment.” Finally, the psychomotor domain embraces physical skills and the performance of actions involved in learning described as “the manipulative or motor-skill area” (Bloom, 1956).
