What learning strategies are most effective in an online learning environment?
The educational community in higher education has, for some time, debated assessment issues. [ With the proliferation of online classrooms and the emphasis on constructivist approaches to learning, these issues have taken on even more importance.
Constructivist learning paradigms are learner-centered and posit that learning occurs when students are actively engaged in making sense of phenomena
as well as constructing and negotiating meanings with others (for an extensive review and analysis of this literature, see Comeaux, 2002). Thus, learning is a reflective and analytical practice as well as an intellectually transformative act. It works when it engages students in active, co-responsible ways of knowing. In this way, teaching and learning become reciprocal enterprises as teachers and learners co-exist in a communal space of shaping and transforming knowledge and understanding.
