I get deep into school, and just can’t get around to posting to my blog.

I’ve had a class on problem-based learning this semester, and while there is a bit (only a bit) of research on problem based learning and writing, there are some methods with very close parallels; process-based writing seems to be the closest.

But now I’m looking at model centered instruction as maybe a theory that gives a little bit more room. It has similar characteristics to PBL, but it has a bit more flexibility.

I’m also excited, as I’ve been doing research into the teaching of writing, that a wiki could really be a powerful tool in teaching, and producing, good writing. Many of the theories and methods of teaching writing rely on constructivist approaches and communication between the reader and the writer. I think the wiki could facilitate this process.

Anyway, more to come after final papers and projects are in.

    Marion,

    You are still me best resource for the most current IT information for a grad student. You are amazing, it looks like you have had a productive semester. I have been pulling my hair out in my most stressful semester ever. Choosing AR as a dissertation topic have proven to be incredibly stressful as I sit at the base of a VERY steep learning curve. Oh well.
