Title:Teaching Instructivist Educated Digital Natives Using a Constructivist Learning Theory in Transnational Education
Author(s):Watson, Ian Robert

Abstract:This work looks at the teaching of eastern educated students (largely instructivist) by staff teaching in a western educational style (constructivist) if these staff themselves have been educated in an eastern educational style. Berry's four fold model of acculturation strategies is applied to the primary research. Conclusions are made that the staff modify their teaching and the materials they are provided with to accommodate the two learning styles. This work also confirms that the teachers conform to Berry's `creative assimilation', as they display a `new' form of the two learning cultures.
