Learning and Instruction Vol. 33, No. 1 (October 2014) pp. 108–119
Two experiments investigated whether acting as a peer model for a video-based modeling example, which entails studying a text with the intention to explain it to others and then actually explaining it on video, would foster learning and transfer. In ...
Learning and Instruction Vol. 38, No. 1 (August 2015) pp. 34–42
We investigated whether problem-based learning (PBL) can foster conceptual change. Students were randomly assigned to a PBL, lecture-based, or self-study group, all receiving instruction about the topic of Newtonian laws. Conceptual change was...
Learning from video modeling examples: Content kept equal, adults are more effective models than peers
Learning and Instruction Vol. 44, No. 1 (August 2016) pp. 22–30
Learning from (video) modeling examples in which a model demonstrates how to perform a task is an effective instructional strategy. The model-observer similarity (MOS) hypothesis postulates that (perceived) similarity between learners and the model...
Is there a role for direct instruction in problem-based learning? Comparing student-constructed versus integrated model answers
Learning and Instruction Vol. 34, No. 1 (December 2014) pp. 22–31
Problem-based learning (PBL) requires students to formulate learning issues that need to be answered by studying multiple literature resources. Advocates of high instructional guidance argue that this is too cognitively demanding for students and...
