Wenqian Bai

I came to EDRL in September of 2014 as a visiting scholar. I’m a doctoral student of Zhejiang University in China. Zhejiang University is located in HangZhou which is a Picturesquare city. There’s a saying that goes:” Up above there is heaven; down below there are Suzhou and Hangzhou.” People always associate Hangzhou with the West Lake.

About me, I like reading, yoga, badminton. Now, my major is Curriculum and Instruction. My focus is constructivism instructional design. I want to trace the development of constructivism instruction ideas, especially about modern constructivism idea of Glasersfeld, E.Von , Gergen, K.J. , Steier, F. and so on. I also find that some of constructivism instructional design models lack of the operability. They are mind, idea, or, principle, for instance Constructivist learning environment of Jonassen, Open-Ended Learning Environment of Hannafin, Teaching and Learning for Understanding of Perkins, etc. So I want to find why and how can I design a instruction model with strong operability.
