Domains of Learning and Kohlberg's Theory of Moral Development

Dr. Pramod Mishra, Vaishali Saxena

Abstract: The aim of education is all round development of the child. There are three domains of learning i.e. cognitive, affective and psychomotor. Cognitive domain is related to mental abilities (knowing), affective domain is related to behavior (feeling) and psychomotor domain is related to skill (doing). Fig 1 shows the three domains of learning. Lawrence Kohlberg developed a model of moral development based on an individuals responses to moral questions called moral dilemmas. Kohlbergs theory attempts to explain how children develop a sense of right or wrong. Kohlberg was influenced by Piagets theory and therefore felt that moral development was determined by cognitive development. Kohlbergs theory describes how individuals pass through a series of three levels of moral development. The paper focuses on Kohlbergs theory of moral development.
