About this book

Research on learning and cognition in geoscience education research and other discipline-based education communities suggests that effective instruction should include three key components: (a) activation of students' prior knowledge on the subject, (b) an active learning pedagogy that allows students to address any existing misconceptions and then build a new understanding of the concept, and (c) metacognitive reflections that require students to evaluate their own learning processes during the lesson. This Element provides an overview of the research on student-centred pedagogy in introductory geoscience and palaeontology courses and gives examples of these instructional approaches. Student-centred learning shifts the power and attention in a classroom from the instructor to the students. In a student-centred classroom, students are in control of their learning experience and the instructor functions primarily as a guide. Student-centred classrooms trade traditional lecture for conceptually-oriented tasks, collaborative learning activities, new technology, inquiry-based learning, and metacognitive reflection.
