Hancock, Dawson R.
College Teaching, v50 n2 p63-66 Spr 2002
Investigated the interactive effects of professors' instruction strategies and students' conceptual levels on the motivation to learn of 83 postsecondary students randomly assigned to either direct or nondirect instruction groups. Found that highly structured teaching methods motivated students with low conceptual levels, while low-structure teaching methods motivated high-conceptual-level students. (EV)
