Schemas have been a staple of cognitive psychology for decades.

Patterns are schemas for getting things done.

Patterns are important in Skilling.

Explicitly teaching patterns improves student performance in introductory programming courses.

The more I think about it, the more it seems that "schema-based course" should be a thing.

Not that there would be just schemas. There would be fact memorization, and means-end problem solving as well.

Should the phrase "schema-based course" be a thing? Not just for computer programming courses, but for other skills courses as well. What are your thoughts?
