P384: Qualitative assessment of inquiry-based teaching methods

Mike Briggs (Indiana University of Pennsylvania, USA)

A new approach to teaching method assessment using student focused qualitative studies and the theoretical framework of mental models is proposed. The theoretical framework of mental models is discussed, and it is argued that the application of this methodology provides a more learner focused approach to assessing a teaching activity. This method can provide more detail about the relevant cognitive processes used by the student and thereby facilitate improved learning.
