1 How Learning Theories Account for Group Development and Readiness Assurance: Piaget, Vygotsky and Bandura Michael Sweet Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment University of Texas, Austin

2 Overview I.Introduction to the theorists and theories II.Application to group development (me) III.Application to readiness assurance (you!)

3 The Players Jean Piaget - Cognitive constructivist Lev Vygotsky - Social constructivist Albert Bandura - Motivational theorist

4 Cognitive Constructivism (Piaget) Learning is: The active, iterative development of mental maps and categories to organize our understanding of ongoing experience. Subject Object relations (knowledge is neither innate nor simply behavioristic) Assimilation and Accommodation Equilibration (carry-on vs. check your baggage?) Knowledge-building-conflict and perspective-taking

5 Social Constructivism (Vygotsky) Development is: Increasingly sophisticated co-creation of a discourse culture via mastery of (and shaping by) its cultural tools. No distinction between cognitive and social development Higher-order learning functions first arise inter- psychologically then are internalized by the individual (fire sticks) Negotiated intersubjectivity the zone of proximal development (ZPD)

6 Social Cognitive Theory (Bandura) Learning is: Secondary to motivation (value + expectancy). Self-efficacy – perceived ability to achieve something specific Collective-efficacy – individually-held belief in group ability Modeling – observational learning

7 Vectors of Group Development ( Birmingham & McCord, 2004) 1.Trust in an attraction to group (less more) 2.Goal identification (self-interest group goals) 3.Perception of others abilities (stereotype specific) 4.Communication (social task) 5.Frequency of disagreement (less more) 6.Conflict resolution (face saving consensus) 7.Complex intellectual ability (less more)
