Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2013 (Mar 25, 2013) pp. 1324–1330
Due to an increase in population size of underrepresented minorities (URM) and a shortage of U.S. citizens who are entering into academic majors involving science, technology, engineering and math, it is critical for the U.S. to create a “pipeline”...
Anatomical Sciences Education Vol. 1, No. 6 (2008) pp. 247–251
Interactive computerized modules have been linked to improved retention of material in clinical medicine. This study examined the effects of a new series of interactive learning modules for preclinical medical education, specifically in the areas of ...
Perspective matters: The internal/external frame of reference model for self- and peer ratings of achievement
Learning and Instruction Vol. 52, No. 1 (December 2017) pp. 80–89
The internal/external frame of reference (I/E) model posits that students' academic self-concept in one domain (e.g., math) is positively associated with achievement in the same domain but negatively associated with achievement in a comparison...
Advances in Physiology Education Vol. 36, No. 3 (September 2012) pp. 220–225
Despite a profusion of popular misinformation about the left brain and right brain, there are functional differences between the left and right cerebral hemispheres in humans. Evidence from split-brain patients, individuals with unilateral brain...

Journal of Educational Data Mining Vol. 10, No. 1 (2018) pp. 1–35
Intelligent tutoring systems can support students in solving multi-step tasks by providing hints regarding what to do next. However, engineering such next-step hints manually or via an expert model becomes infeasible if the space of possible states...
An Adaptive and Context-Aware Scenario Model Based on a Web Service Architecture for Pervasive Learning Systems
International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning Vol. 1, No. 3 (July 2009) pp. 41–69
Pervasive learning will become increasingly important in technology-enhanced learning (TEL). In this context, development efforts focus on features such as context-awareness, adaptation, services retrieval and orchestration mechanisms. This paper...
