The Essence of Teaching-Learning Conceptual Relations: How Does Teaching Work?
Pitkaniemi, Harri
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v53 n3 p263-276 Jun 2009
This article examines the concept of teaching, focusing particularly on how teaching and learning relate to each other. The history of conceptual research on teaching has produced a variety of teaching analyses. According to the modern conception of learning, none of these conceptual analyses offers a satisfactory account of the relation between teaching and learning. On the basis of these different perspectives of theoretical studies, the author concludes by integrating the existing models in four models in which teaching and learning are connected: the model of one-way presentational effect, the model of one-way constructive effect, the model of presentational multi-way effect, and the model of constructive multi-way effect. These models are not rivals, but essentially complement each other.
