This study examined the use of online argumentation scaffolds to engage and support coherent argumentation. Participants were students in an undergraduate economics course. Results showed that providing a constraint-based argumentation scaffold...
Quarterly Review of Distance Education Vol. 2, No. 4 (2001) pp. 303–17
Examines some limitations of online course delivery and management systems in terms of the range of pedagogies they support, and explores the effects of a distance learning pedagogy that emphasizes alternative forms of knowledge representation,...
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 50, No. 2 (2002) pp. 65–77
Discusses the increased emphasis on problem solving and problem-based learning in instructional design and the need for new methods for task analysis and models for designing instruction. Defines the rationale and means for analyzing, organizing,...
International Journal of Designs for Learning Vol. 3, No. 1 (Oct 30, 2012)
Instructional designers can support ill-structured problem solving through case libraries that detail domain-specific principles. In this design project, case libraries were employed in an undergraduate sales management course to contextualize...
Distance Education Vol. 20, No. 1 (1999) pp. 49–63
Describes a model for designing learning environments that engage learners in solving problems and can be delivered at a distance via the World Wide Web. Applies the model to a constructivist learning environment for an undergraduate management...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2000 (2000) pp. 423–428
This study investigated how differences in task affected learner navigation choices, transfer of knowledge, and attitude toward the topic when using hypertext materials about sexual harassment that were designed using cognitive flexibility theory...
The evolution of a collaborative authoring system for non-linear hypertext: A design-based research study
Computers & Education Vol. 51, No. 1 (August 2008) pp. 67–85
Learning in complex and ill-structured knowledge domains requires accommodation of multiple perspectives embedded in authentic activities and the reconciliation of those perspectives with personal beliefs resulting in conceptual change. Cognitive...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2002 (2002) pp. 1812–1813
The Knowledge Innovation for Technology in Education (KITE) project is funded by US Department of Education to build a knowledge repository with case-based reasoning capabilities to capture and disseminate the best practices and lessons learned of...
