Abstract

This article presents anecdotal accounts of an online alternative teacher certification preparation program course for post-baccalaureate in-service school personnel seeking initial teaching credentials. The Blackboard platform is used for the course. Topically, students were assigned to explain contemporary learning theory by active participation in a web-based learning styles inventory and corresponding discussion board dialogue. Student-developed summaries from the web-based learning styles inventory and discussion board responses to the question "Can learning styles be self-assessed?" with corresponding instructor comments are delineated through discussion and demonstrations. The final summary is presented as teacher education representation of "best practices" from a constructivist comparative alignment viewpoint.
