[Paperback - 221 pages - ISBN 0805812725]

Comments by thinkglobalnow:
"The "conversation" in this book is between a learning theorist and an instructional designer. The instructional designer (who could also be a teacher) creates lesson activities based on his/her beliefs about how people learn. These beliefs may be based on a variety of learning theories. Constructivist approaches challenge educators to understand that knowledge is invented anew by the learner, and not transmitted to them by teachers, textbooks or technologies. "
