Making Content Easier or Adding More Challenge in Year One University Physics?
Chang, Wheijen; Bell, Beverley
Research in Science Education, v32 n1 p81-96 2002
Lecturers may provide insufficient challenge when teaching first year university physics courses. Investigates comparisons in learning outcomes between a traditional teaching group and a constructivist-orientated teaching group along with lecturers' and students' perceptions of those courses. The lecturers emphasized the students' poor physics background and adopted strategies to diminish the possible cognitive challenge in their teaching design. (Author/MM)
