Tuesday Teaching and Learning

Today we have three items we would like to share: First, an article by Ken A. Graetz, the director of e-learning at Winona State University, discusses learning environments in his article "The Psychology of Learning Environments." Second, check out the article "Problem Based Learning: An instructional model and its constructivist framework" by Savery and Duffy. Lastly, try out Ask a Scientist, a website sponsored by HHMI (Howard Hughes Medical Institute), which the Institute's original charter states, "The primary purpose and objective of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute shall be the promotion of human knowledge within the field of the basic sciences (principally the field of medical research and medical education) and the effective application thereof for the benefit of mankind.
