A questionnaire for monitoring social constructivist reform in university teaching

Fisher, D. and Taylor, P. (1997) A questionnaire for monitoring social constructivist reform in university teaching. In: Teaching and Learning Forum 1997: Learning through teaching, February 1997, Murdoch University, Murdoch, W.A



As university teacher educators working in the field of science and mathematics education we are committed to reforming the transmission-style of epistemology evident in many university lecture theatres and tutorial classes. In this paper, we present a new learning environment questionnaire for use by university teachers wishing to monitor their development of teaching approaches based on a social constructivist perspective on learning. The questionnaire was trialled in the postgraduate classroom of one of the authors who teachers in accordance with a social constructivist perspective. It was found to a generate plausible account of a range of students' experiences.
