Sample text

Spending a few days in a simulated battle maneuver in a desert in the southwestern United States would better prepare soldiers for the rigor of war in the Middle East than reading several pages of text or watching a film. Similarly, McDonald’s sends most managers to Hamburger University, where they must pass muster in a simulated restaurant replete with cooks, crew, and customers. Finally, direct and purposeful experiences invoke all the senses— sight, sound, taste and smell, and movement and touch—in real time.

Although pure lecturing (meaning talk without accompanying illustrations or other sensory stimuli) can be effective for communicating large amounts of information to bright and willing students, such an instructional approach does not veer beyond the abstract. As Arnheim (1997) noted, “Human thinking cannot go beyond the patterns suppliable by the human senses. . language. . argues loudly in favor of the contention that thinking takes place in the realm of the senses” (p. 233). Unfortunately, most schools respond to struggling (or remedial) students by forcing them to spend even more time in the realm of the abstract—more work on textual comprehension, more worksheets, more of the back-to-basics approach.

Going to a culinary institute and witnessing firsthand a variety of ways to cook a hamburger would be superior to watching a film. After watching demonstrations by several cooks, the observer’s ideas about hamburgers could be considerably enlarged. Multisensory Learning, Engagement, and Achievement Demonstrating knowledge by modeling appropriate techniques for preparing, cooking, and consuming a hamburger would be better still. This kind of knowledge—learning by teaching—can be quite effective, as the scholarly productivity of teachers and professors around the world attests.
