8 Gisella Langé - IMPEL Workshop Graz, March 29, 2007 IMPEL Glossary ___________________________________________ A glossary of ELP implementation terminology

9 Gisella Langé - IMPEL Workshop Graz, March 29, 2007 ‘Bottom-up’ See IMPEL Glossary A familiar term referring to both learning and management styles. Where it applies to learning, it denotes an exploration and discovery approach in which the learner arrives autonomously at knowledge and understanding and then interacts with the teacher to confirm and consolidate these. It can also denote an implementation process in which teachers are the driving force in innovation, rather than inspectors or advisers. (cf. ‘top down’ q.v.)

10 Gisella Langé - IMPEL Workshop Graz, March 29, 2007 ‘Top-down’ A familiar term referring to both learning and management styles. In learning, it denotes a teacher-led approach in which all knowledge is passed down to pupils who have a somewhat passive role in the process. In a management context it can describe the imposition of, e.g., innovation, by advisers and inspectors rather than its evolution in the classroom. (cf. ‘bottom- up’ q.v.) See IMPEL Glossary
