Ezines: A Constructivist Instructional Activity for Teaching Diagnosis and Psychopathology
Jones, Karyn Dayle; Granello, Paul F.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v3 n2 p127-138 Jul 2008
Ezines (electronic zines) are independently made, online publications that can provide creative, pedagogical possibilities for constructivist learning in counselor education and, specifically, the diagnosis class. Making ezines about mental disorders and psychopathology allows students to engage in active learning about important topics while incorporating such constructivist principles as meaning and knowledge construction, multiple perspectives, and contextual thinking. The purpose of this article is to describe an innovative, constructivist learning strategy that involves the use of ezines in teaching diagnosis and psychopathology. (Contains 2 figures.)
