# Foundations of Constructivism/Preface

This textbook, *Foundations of Constructivism: A Guidebook for Educators*, is initiated as a collaborative writing project for a Webster University graduate course on the Foundations of Constructivism.

The edition of this textbook was developed in the Spring 2010 semester. The instructor is Dr. Roy Tamashiro. The 8 graduate students in the course were the primary authors, editors, and quiz builders.

The aim of the course was to learn *about* the theory, research and applications of constructivism by *doing* constructivism in the course. The development of this WikiBook was the primary methodology for reading about constructivism, dialoguing about it, and applying it to other teaching / learning situations.
