Abstract

Abstract: Knowledge, skills and understanding are three fundamental issues in the education domain. Knowledge and skills that are not understood (but learnt by rote) do little good to students. The authors implemented a web-based model for peer-group inquisitive activities called Learning for Understanding (L4U) to an Investment Banking course in Hong Kong. This paper explains the rationale, the basic model, its implementation, and the role of the Web in facilitating the learning activities. It also evaluates the usefulness and effectiveness of the model in engaging the student-groups in sequenced tasks that require knowledge, justification, explanation, problem-solving, and management of inquiries: the ingredients of true understanding.
