  • Transformative—cause the learner to experience a shift in perspective;
    Integrative—bring together separate concepts (often identified as learning objectives) into a unified whole;
    Irreversible—once grasped, cannot be un-grasped;
    Bounded—may help define the boundaries of a particular discipline, are perhaps unique to the discipline;
    Troublesome—usually difficult or counterintuitive ideas that can cause students to hit a roadblock in their learning.
