Preparing Students for Lifelong Learning: A Review of Instructional Methodologies.
Dunlap, Joanna C.
In a climate of rapid change, increasing innovation, and proliferating knowledge, lifelong learning is an important educational objective. Lifelong learning skills need to be developed if educators intend for their students to stay current in their fields. Staying abreast of new innovations, research, techniques, and information is a prerequisite for successful decision-making and problem-solving on the job. This paper provides an overview of instructional methodologies--problem-based learning, intentional learning, reciprocal teaching, and cognitive apprenticeship--that prepare students for lifelong learning. Using collaboration, reflection, student autonomy, and intrinsically-motivating activities, these instructional methodologies help students develop the metacognitive and self-directed learning skills needed to remain competitive in an ever changing professional climate.
