Promoting Learner-Centered Instruction through the Use of Cooperative and Inquiry Learning Strategies.
Erdal, Sevinc O.; Ongel, Kurtulus
In light of improving standards in education, some countries are going through major changes in their education systems. At the core of these movements lies the paradigm of changes in education. In the last two decades, constructivism became increasingly popular as a referent for professional actions in education. Under this constructivist worldview, teaching methods such as cooperative learning and inquiry in science instruction moved toward the front lines. The purpose of this paper is two fold. The first is to explain the theoretical bases for cooperative learning and inquiry learning through review of the literature in teaching and teacher education. The second is to explain the design of an integration of cooperative and inquiry learning in an instructional methods course for pre-service science teachers, specifically in Turkey. (SOE)
