Domains of Learning and Kohlbergs 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 individual’s responses to moral questions called moral dilemmas. Kohlberg’s theory attempts to explain how children develop a sense of right or wrong. Kohlberg was influenced by Piaget’s theory and therefore felt that moral development was determined by cognitive development. Kohlberg’s theory describes how individuals pass through a series of three levels of moral development. The paper focuses on Kohlberg’s theory of moral development.
