Constructivism: Creating a Student-Regulated Learning Environment - 3 In-Service Credits

Date and Location: ONLINE - August 4th, 2015 - September 29th, 2015

This course examines constructivism; a learning theory that “describes knowledge as temporary, developmental, nonobjective, internally constructed, and socially and culturally mediated. Learning from this perspective is viewed as a self-regulatory process of struggling with the conflict between existing personal models of the world and discrepant new insights, constructing new representations of reality as a human meaning-making venture with culturally developed roots and tools and symbols, and further negotiating such meaning through cooperative social activity, discourse, and debate” (Fosnot 1994).

Participants will partner up to discuss key ideas and perspectives in order to create engaging and meaningful learning experiences.

Student Teacher's Supplement Course

Date and Location: ONLINE: September 1 - October 30, 2015

Student Teacher's Supplement Course (Non-Credit)
Phillip Greco, Instructor
This course offers a partnership between student teachers and the instructor in order to utilize a framework that seeks to provide tools associated with advocacy and informed teaching. The framework looks at principles of learning, sources, theoretical implementation, contrasting views and practice, and challenges student teachers to create "give-backs" to the profession as well as strategies for implementing new ideas in a world of red tape, teacher evaluations, and behavioral thinking. 2 hours are spent with the instructor discussing and reflecting on the implementation of the framework. The remaining hours are independently utilized by the student teacher on-site at their teaching placement.

Details will be sent via email within 24 hours of payment/registration.
