Nils S Peterson, John R Jungck 1998 Academic Computing v 2, n 6, p 14-17 and 48-50
This article is about how computers and a new pedagogy can increase the importance of content-based, problem-solving learning in biology. The paper proposes that computers can facilitate student laboratory research, and that such research is central to a deep understanding of how scientific knowledge is created, modified, and employed. Further, domain-specific problem-solving is a powerful vehicle for teaching the content of the domain along with its working procedures.
