Exploring the learning opportunities of an innovative teaching method in a constructivist classroom environment
Session Time and Location
Student-centred teaching strategies were adopted to align with institutional transformations. The aim was to explore the opportunities of an innovative teaching method, within a constructivist classroom environment. Students construct knowledge and meaning from their experiences during the learning activity by constructing a basic 3D model from modelling material, according to their prior knowledge of the normal anatomy of the structure. The student then trace the progression of changes instigated by the disease by changing the model according to the stages as the disease progresses, until the end stage of the disease. Evidence confirmed the effectiveness of the learning activity.
