The Use of Learning Contracts in an Italian University Setting
Fedeli, Monica; Giampaolo, Mario; Coryell, Joellen E.
Adult Learning, v24 n3 p104-111 Aug 2013
This mixed-methods study illustrates the implementation of Malcolm Knowles's 1986 model of learning contracts in a current Italian University context. The study attempted to improve and adapt the tool to a master's degree course at the University of Padua. Three professors conducted the integrated course, making extensive efforts to share the aims of their programs and involve the students in this research. The findings helped us reflect on how to improve the contract and better involve the students. Finally, the technology must be improved to be more user-friendly for use in blended courses.
