Why use structured controversy pedagogy (in LAMS)?
MetadataShow full item record
This paper explores the nature, purpose and practice of structured controversy pedagogy (SCP). It begins by examining the philosophical underpinnings of SCP and explains its relationship with transformational learning. A four-step model is introduced, followed by two LAMS-based case examples, illustrating contemporary, technology-based applications of this pedagogical model. This paper argues that SCP may provide a possibility to engage students and lecturers in teaching and learning practices that move beyond transmission education. It is a response to Dalziel’s (2010) call for more specific examples of eTeaching Strategies.
