Teaching and Learning as Communication: A Cultural Approach.
Chen, Zhuojun (Joyce)
With an ethnographic approach, this paper focused on the process of students' learning. It examines students' feelings about learning environments and expectations of college education, as well as professors' experiences with college teaching and their views of teachers' role in contemporary society. Unstructured, intensive interviews were conducted with four instructors and four students. Students' views supported P.G. Loves' claim (1995) that integrating intellectual, social, and emotional aspects in undergraduate student lives would increase their learning effectiveness. Professors showed their support to Constructivism. However, there seemed a gap existing between students' demand upon professors' attention and professors' requirement of students' motivation. How to bridge the gap needs further study. (Contains 22 references.) (Author/RS)
