Transforming Passive Receptivity of Knowledge into Deep Learning Experiences at the Undergraduate Level: An Example from Music Theory
Ferenc, Anna
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v8 p55-78 2015
This article discusses transformation of passive knowledge receptivity into experiences of deep learning in a lecture-based music theory course at the second-year undergraduate level through implementation of collaborative projects that evoke natural critical learning environments. It presents an example of such a project, addresses key features of its design to keep in mind for adaptation to other disciplines, and analyzes its effectiveness through a qualitative study of student reflections. The study yields compelling evidence of enhanced engagement with subject learning, meta-learning and transfer of learning.
