We can enhance students learning abilities by improving the quality of our teaching through our own reflections, self monitoring the improvement of our decisions and actions and, change our teaching practice using the evidences that are available and can be put into action. Through our case study we provide insights into the application of constructivist theory and reflective practice strategies in teaching FIMS.
