The Systemic Approach to Teaching and Learning [SATL]: Operational Steps for Building Teaching Units

  • AFM Fahmy
  • JJ Lagowski


Systemic diagrams are the key to creating units of study for the method described as the Systemic Approach to Teaching and Learning (SATL). Here we present a detailed description of the generation of systemics. The general approach is first discussed to establish the basic ideas of SATL. The general method is then specifically applied to a portion of the aromatic chemistry of benzene and its simpler derivatives. Finally, examples of SATL-oriented questions for student assessment are presented.
