Student Learning in the Information Age, Part 2
The author offers an in-depth examination of resource-based learning as an important new paradigm for higher education. This concept shifts the focus from teaching to learning by requiring students to select their own learning materials from a wide range of real world information resources. A resource-based approach helps students assume more responsibility for their own learning, and it provides a practical means of addressing differences in students' educational needs. Breivik highlights examples of colleges and universities that already are using this approach successfully, and it offers a framework to help educators create their own resource-based learning programmes. This new work should be of value to academic leaders and faculty members who are concerned with preparing students for lifelong learning. It also should be of significant interest to campus information providers.
