Rico, Rodolfo; Ertmer, Peggy A.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v59 n4 p96-103 Jul 2015
In this paper, we examine the role of the instructor during student-centered approaches, specifically those that are problem-centered, to outline effective strategies that are valuable for facilitating discussions. After describing the role of the instructor in each phase of implementation, from planning to evaluation, we discuss specific strategies for facilitating effective discussions. Strategies identified as being successful in problem-centered discussions included meta- cognitive questioning, peer facilitation, and teacher training, to name a few.
