Le CREAS vous invite à une conférence scientifique animée par Michael Giamellaro, professeur à la Oregon State University.
DESCRIPTION EN ANGLAIS SEULEMENT :
Although experience and context are central to modern educational theory, there has been little empirical
investigation into how experience contributes to learning or how learners use context in the learning process. There is no metric to determine how experiential a learning event is, where the line between experiential and traditional curriculum is, nor to what degree the authenticity of an experience contributes to learning. This gap is partially explained by the messiness and unbounded nature of both experience and context. Building on the work of 20th Century and modern scholars, Giamellaro has proposed the use of contextualization as a construct to measure and manipulate the relationship between content knowledge and authentic contexts, bounding some
of that messiness. This context-content relationship is a key factor in what determines whether an experience is educative or not. It is detectable in curriculum, cognition, and learning outcomes. In this presentation Giamellaro will present the current iteration of the contextualization spectrum, a tool that allows educators and researchers the ability to align learning goals to targeted degrees of contextualization. This discussion will focus on the theoretical as well as the applied state of contextualization. Through this work Giamellaro and collaborators are hopeful to advance our understanding of how contextualization, the transactional bridge between internal and external experience, impact learning processes. Several examples of Giamellaro’s recent applied and empirical
research will be used to illustrate how contextualization can be used to design, measure, and evaluate the role of experience in a variety of science learning venues.
Assistant Professor of Science and Mathematics Education in the College of Education at Oregon State University. Dr. Giamellaro’s research explores the processes of learning in authentic contexts as well as the instructional and systemic structures that can support contextualized learning. His work has ranged from examining individual learners’ experiences with situating science content to working with a school system to design, implement, and evaluate an approach to K-12, contextualized STEM for every student in the district. While this work includes and is founded on the theoretical constructs of pragmatism and situated learning, the research is all in the
service of creating meaningful and effective science learning experiences for students. Giamellaro lives in the foothills of the Cascades Mountains where he spends his free time adventuring with his family in the rivers, lakes, forests and snowfields
that surround OSU-Cascades in Bend, Oregon.
