3Cs for better teaching and learning.

  1. I’ve been thinking about constructivist learning lately, in the context of discussions about visual art.

    • I like the constructivist idea also, especially for writing or art or any other subject that has both a “practice” side and a “theory” side. I think we tend to separate the two too much: writing theory for compositionists and creative writing for poets and authors, for example. I assume there’s a similar divide between art history and artists. I like the constructivist notion because it suggests that there’s a practice side for ANY subject, and that anyone who studies the subject should be “doing” as well as “reading about” or studying the subject.
