As an instructional facilitator, I believe that the learning environment should be one that supports the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions pertaining to the subject. This exploration will occur through the use of lectures, readings, team interactions, video streaming, research investigations, and class discussions. In essence, the classroom structure becomes one where learners become actively involved with content through the manipulation of materials and social interaction.
