"Theories and Models"

Duration 00:13:50      Recorded on January 07, 2013

Susan and Dan continue their conversation concerning learning theories and models.

Show Notes:

Model - a visualization of a process or structure, typically based on theory

Theory - the results of research and testing, generalizations about how people learn.

How many theories and models do you need to know? Dan says more than 1 and fewer than 5.

The rest of the conversation gets at the importance of knowing your own preferences, how theories and models fit with difference challenges, and why the environment matters.

Listeners, what theories and models guide you most?
