    • 4. Constructivist approach (1)
      • Practical problem-solving activity
      • Learning can be achieved by reflective thinking to solve problems through analysis of lifelike problems and potential alternative solutions, i.e. teachers acting as guides rather than as dispensers of information
      4 - 6 Oct 2008 TTT Workshop Cape Town
    • 5. Constructivist approach (2)
      • Building on prior knowledge (Bruner)

      • Learners are engaged in meaningful, challenging tasks or solving real-world problems
      • People construct their own understanding when they are interested in what they are learning
      4 - 6 Oct 2008 TTT Workshop Cape Town
    • 7. Applications: learning/teaching
      • Students are given problems and resources to solve them
      • Learning is active & learners are encouraged to be self-directed, taking responsibility for their own learning
      • Interaction among students promotes achievement of learning goals more successfully than learning alone

    • 11. Independent curricular course
      • Courses are offered independently and devoted to IL, but part of students’ curriculum

      • Independent of faculty curriculum
      • But plan to have it eventually become part of students’ curricula

      • Provide recognition of course such as certificate
      4 - 6 Oct 2008 TTT Workshop Cape Town
    • 13. Independent short courses
      • Means of training specific IL objectives and for updating skills of your learning community
      • But very important to contextualise it
      • A series of short courses can be integrated into a full course
      • Workshops should be focused, preferably marketed with a catchy title
      4 - 6 Oct 2008 TTT Workshop Cape Town
