What is to be taught? How is learning to occur? What makes for a truly successful learner? Educators are increasingly looking to the learning and psychological sciences for help in answering these questions. Covering content is no longer considered adequate, nor is a simple emphasis on the purely academic domain sufficient. Educators are being challenged with developing competencies that extend beyond what might be called the cognitive domain. This is especially important for children with developmental challenges. Often efforts focus solely on competencies in what might be termed the “cognitive domain.” In addition to cognitive competencies, three other competencies have been identified that some have suggested are essential for learners to master metacognitive, social/emotional, and motivational competencies. Although there is an emerging consensus that these are important, there is not wide- spread agreement on precisely how these competencies are defined and how they may be acquired. This workshop provides a behavioral description of each competency, how each may be taught, and how the competencies converge, that is, how each competency may contribute an important component (or components) to another.
