Constructivism, Instructivism, and Related Sites

The contention between student-centered and teacher-centered approaches has a long history. Constructivism is often related to the philosophies of Dewey and Rousseau, and inspired by Piaget and Vygotsky. Instructivism is related to faculty psychology, behaviorism, and to the research-based programs of the last few decades known as process-product pedagogy, such as the work of Bereiter and Rosenshine.
