Taber K. S. (2006) Beyond constructivism: The progressive research programme into learning science. Studies in Science Education 42: 125–184. Fulltext at
Excerpt: Rather than suggest that constructivist research is a spent force, this Lakatosian analysis suggests that this body of work can be understood as an important, if flawed and uneven, part of an ongoing progressive research programme into learning in science. Perhaps the ‘constructivist’ label is now passe or disreputable in some quarters, but the hard core of the constructivist programme identified here seems sound. Perhaps being ‘commonplace and unremarkable.… and.… too well known to be thought worthy of comment’ (Solomon, 1994: 6) is exactly how we should expect the hard core to appear to those working in a research programme.
