E-Learning Strategies in Technical Part-Time Studies at Campus Pinkafeld â?? A Moderate Constructivist Approach to Learning and Teaching

Andrea Kelz

Abstract


The introduction of part-time studies contributed decisively to a wider acceptance of technical degree programmes at Campus Pinkafeld as their particular organisational design allows students to study alongside work and family commitments. As far as higher technical education is concerned, they provide constructivist-oriented pedagogic approaches to best prepare students for the workplace. In contrast to traditional behaviourist notions, constructivist frameworks allow for blended-learning settings which help implement learning scenarios based on open, technology-aided, learner-centred, self-directed and collaborative learning environments. Exploring some of these more progressive, process-oriented approaches to learning and teaching and the theory behind it are the primary aims of this paper.
