2 Implications for the Research Programme The argument made in this chapter has taken well-established constructivist ideas about teaching, normally considered primarily from a cognitive perspective, and suggested that considerations from the affective domain reinforce the key principles posited as the basis of constructivist-informed chemistry teaching. If we accept, with Ausubel, that the most important single factor influencing learning is indeed what the learner already knows, then perhaps close behind might be how the learner experiences the processes of making sense of teaching and learning activities.
