Powerful Learning Is Interactive: A Cross-Cultural Perspective
Van Petegem, Peter; De Loght, Toby; Shortridge, Ann M.
E-Journal of Instructional Science and Technology, v7 n1 2004
For centuries traditional university education has primarily focused on building foundational skills in particular disciplines via the transfer of knowledge from instructor to student. Today however, simply being able to reproduce knowledge is no longer adequate; students must also be able to apply their knowledge to changing, real world contexts. By sharing lessons learned and drawing parallels across cultural boundaries, the University of Antwerp, Belgium and the University of Arkansas, USA provide additional insight into how to effectively teach students these skills. Topics that are addressed include: the concepts of powerful learning, interactivity, adequate dialogue, and the post-development evaluation and effective use of e learning environments. (Contains 2 figures and 4 tables.)
