Educational Progressivism

The main principle of educational progressivism is that humans are social animals who learn best in real-time activities.

Instructors should focus on providing students with the necessary skills and knowledge to survive and to succeed in our competitive society.

Strong emphasis on problem-based learning to develop problem solving and analysis skills (For example, instructor posing questions the exercise students’ minds in a practical manner)

The purpose of education is to enhance individual effectiveness in society and give learners’ practical knowledge and problem-solving skills.

Based on John Dewey's model of learning instructors should:
Become aware of the goal,
Define the objectives,
Propose hypotheses to achieve the goal,
Evaluate the consequences of the hypotheses from one's past experience, and
Test the most likely solution
