Two Cases of College Instructors' Application of Constructivist Principles
Ferguson, John W.
College Quarterly, v8 n3 Sum 2005
The experience of seven community college instructors was documented as they applied, for the first time, principles and characteristics of constructivist pedagogy to the design of learning activities. The instructors became a community of learners as they collaborated and shared their experiences among themselves. They reported improvements in the quality of the learning experienced by their students. They observed the development of negotiation, teamwork and management skills in their students as they actively participated in the learning activities. The participants indicated that the constructivist approaches they had learned would become instructional design tools they would use in other learning units. (Contains 1 figure.)
