Christianson, Roger G.; Fisher, Kathleen M.
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n6 p687-98 Jul 1999
Reports on the effects of constructivist versus traditional teaching approaches on university students' learning about osmosis and diffusion. Students understood diffusion and osmosis more deeply in the constructivist-informed classroom, which used small discussion groups rather than traditional large lecture groups. Suggests ways to improve student learning in other settings. Contains 22 references. (Author/WRM)
