ALD 701 First Session

We had a busy morning and talked about ideas (my favorite things to discuss)

We talked about Constructivist Learning Theory and Social Cognitive Theory.  We talked about philosophies and beliefs about learning and teaching.  We talked briefly about Learning Styles and the impact of Learning Styles on instruction.  We did not address your chapter reading on Behavioral Learning Theory, so I hope at least one of you addresses the contribution Behaviorism has had on teaching and learning in the US. (although out of favor, it is still very much alive). 

I look forward to reading your posts...  Be sure to respond to one of your colleagues ideas
