Donald, Janet G.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n64 p7-17 Win 1995
Differences in the kinds of knowledge validation processes, truth criteria, and other factors associated with knowledge production are presented for five disciplines (physics, engineering, psychology, education, and English literature), and implications for improving instruction are examined. It is concluded that faculty must understand the epistemology of their disciplines and convey it clearly to students. (MSE)
