 In, The Human Cycle, Colin Turnbull (1989) says:


Much of what is taught at university, and the manner of teaching, amounts to little more than technical training and thus, however necessariy, curtails full intellectual development. That is the price we have to pay for the specialization that characterizes our society, in which even the art of reason comes to be considered a specialized skill, appropriate and useful to some and not for others. (p.130)


Watch the following two videos showing two different teaching styles.

  1. Have you ever had a teacher that taught using constructivist principles? Please share your experiences as a student of a constructivist teacher.
  2. Think back upon your experience as an undergraduate student. Do you agree with Colin's opinion regarding university education (that is "curtails full intellectual development") or did you have a different experience? Please relate your experience back to the two videos shown.
