Provocation in the Halls of Academe: Bringing Piaget and Vygotsky into the University Classroom
Fink, Dale Borman
Thought & Action, p63-74 Fall 2014
The author began working with preschool-aged children long before becoming a professor, and nearly every element of the author's approach to teaching in higher education is rooted in early childhood theory and practice. In addition to provocations, he seeks to activate the "whole student," promote peer supports, and incorporate informal and authentic forms of assessment. In this article, the author elaborates on each of these, after first explaining the origin of his commitment to transform the college classroom into something more like an early childhood setting.
