Agneta Gulz : Learning for real – leaving simplistic models and theories behind

Powerful pedagogical approaches are rarely based on a single perspective. What is interesting – and challenging – is to combine different perspectives and ideas in smart ways to gain real pedagogical power. The talk will illustrate benefits that can be had when educators and learning scientists leave simplistic and often ideologically colored questions – and answers – behind. It will discuss important factors such as: using innovative research methods to get really close to the learning processes as they happen; setting up close collaboration between teachers, researchers, and students; and having the courage to dismiss cherished theories and favorite models in view of evidence.
