Experimentation and Learning Theory
by Morris L. Bigge — 1970
Dr. Bigge is Professor of Educational Foundations at Fresno State. Here, seeking a theoretical basis for reflective teaching, he examines some of the paradigms which have emerged in the development of a science of learning. The behaviorists, he believes, have never moved far enough beyond the S-R approach with its presumption of a passive, reactive learner. Drawing his conception of reflective teaching from Deweyan experimentalism, Professor Bigge concludes that cognitive-field learning theory provides a paradigm most suggestive for "problem-centered, exploratory teaching."
