Constructivism: Creating a Student-Regulated Learning Environment – 3 In-Service Credits
Date(s) - 04/08/2015 - 29/09/2017
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.
