Teacher's Toolkit Library

We have gathered books from the UCSF library that deal with topics relating to the Teacher's Toolkit: eLearning, Educational Technology, Instructional Design, Online Collaboration, and more. These are available to all members of the UCSF community.


Welcome to the UCSF Teacher's Toolkit!

The Teacher's Toolkit integrates tips, tutorials, and referral information to assist UCSF faculty in their role as educators. For its initial rollout, the Toolkit is focused on educational technology, but will expand to include other aspects of education. We are continually working to develop the Teacher's Toolkit into a rich resource. Explore the Toolkit and let us know what other topics you would like to see us cover. 

To navigate between different pages within a guide, there will be tabs located in the dark gray bar below the top banner.

Situated Learning - Jean Lave; Etienne Wenger
ISBN: 9780521413084
Publication Date: 1991-09-27
In this important theoretical treatise, Jean Lave, anthropologist, and Etienne Wenger, computer scientist, push forward the notion of situated learning--that learning is fundamentally a social process and not solely in the learner's head. The authors maintain that learning viewed as situated activity has as its central defining characteristic a process they call legitimate peripheral participation. Learners participate in communities of practitioners, moving toward full participation in the sociocultural practices of a community. Legitimate peripheral participation provides a way to speak about crucial relations between newcomers and oldtimers and about their activities, identities, artifacts, knowledge and practice. The communities discussed in the book are midwives, tailors, quartermasters, butchers, and recovering alcoholics, however, the process by which participants in those communities learn can be generalized to other social groups.
