Back to basic: should students learn content, process or both?
MetadataShow full item record
Traditional classrooms inherently emphasize on delivering content and ensuring completeness of coverage as opposed to delving in the process of learning. Common reasons include lack of time, the axiom that ‘content is king’ and the assumption that students would have the appropriate requisite skills to acquire and apply once they knew the content. Numerous studies have highlighted that rote memorisation, study-to-test and cut-and-paste from the internet is the common model of the content learning paradigm.
