CONNECTIONS AND RELATIONS-BASED LEARNING: THE NETWORK AND THE MESH

Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (MEXICO)
Complexity, chaos and general systems theories support the identification of connections and relations between facts, notions, topics, contexts, people, among others. Connection and relations based learning is part of what has been called integrative learning in which students establish associations between ideas and experiences, transferring what has been learned to new and complex situations. It allows the development of numerous abilities including research, analysis, critical and creative thinking, problem solving, decision making, team work, life-long learning and multicultural knowledge and competence.

It has also been said to provide significant experiences that are produced through interactions with the social and physical environment, creating complex relations, having a direct impact on students commitment and satisfaction, since they are deeply rooted in emotions and provide a valuable learning component.

In 2017 a new educational model was developed at UPAEP, a private university in the state of Puebla, which relies on the use of active methodologies including connections and relations based learning, problem based learning, project based learning , and service learning, among others.

The transition towards more active and challenge based learning processes has resulted in unprecedented opportunities to develop and use different didactic and methodological techniques, specifically connections and relations based learning. In order to promote its use in the classroom, courses were developed and deployed with interesting results. This article explains its development along with specific activities designed for students.
