At the crossroad between behaviourism and cognitive constructivism

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Many educationists recommend that learning objectives should be given in a behaviouristic way with directly observable actions. At the same time cognitive constructivism seems to be the preferred theory within the engineering educational community. There is no conflict in using a behavioural approach to assess final competences in a constructivist setting, but during an education we should evaluate the progress of the student’s learning. One way could be to look at the student’s errors.
