Constructivist Approaches Online and Face-to-Face: The Essential Role of Trust
Pruitt, Rebecca
Curriculum and Teaching Dialogue, v19 n1-2 p105-127 2017
This qualitative study examined two sections of a course in child development, one online and one face-to-face, for comparisons related to constructivist approaches of the instructor and constructivist processes of the learners. Themes for each course section were more similar than different, indicating that factors other than delivery method play a role--namely trust between instructor and learner. The lens of the "Women's Ways of Knowing" (Belenky et al., 1997) framework revealed additional implications.
