Abstract

This paper discusses the design and implementation of a case-based, problem-centered learning environment along with essay assignments that require students in an introductory sociology course to make and justify decisions applying sociological theories and concepts to everyday life situations. The environment is created around the principles of problem-solving, cognitive flexibility theory, and argumentation. Results from a pilot deployment are discussed in the context of determining future work in both system and instructional design to better meet both student needs and instructional goals.
