Evens, Marie; Tielemans, Kelly; Elen, Jan; Depaepe, Fien – Educational Studies, 2019
Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) is an important predictor of educational quality. PCK develops from various sources, such as teaching experience. Studies investigating the effects of teaching experience on PCK development mainly focus on the question whether experienced teachers differ from novices in the amount of PCK. In a mixed methods…

Tiruneh, Dawit Tibebu; De Cock, Mieke; Elen, Jan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Fostering the development of students' critical thinking (CT) is regarded as an essential outcome of higher education. However, despite the large body of research on this topic, there has been little consensus on how educators best support the development of CT. In view of some of the controversies surrounding the teaching of CT skills in higher…

Evens, Marie; Larmuseau, Charlotte; Dewaele, Katrien; Van Craesbeek, Leen; Elen, Jan; Depaepe, Fien – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2017
This study examines the effects of an online learning environment on preservice teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), content knowledge (CK) (related to French in primary teacher education), and pedagogical knowledge (PK) in a quasi-experimental design. More specifically, the following research question is addressed: Is a systematically…

Tiruneh, Dawit Tibebu; De Cock, Mieke; Weldeslassie, Ataklti G.; Elen, Jan; Janssen, Rianne – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Although the development of critical thinking (CT) is a major goal of science education, adequate emphasis has not been given to the measurement of CT skills in specific science domains such as physics. Recognizing that adequately assessing CT implies the assessment of both domain-specific and domain-general CT skills, this study reports on the…

Tiruneh, Dawit Tibebu; Weldeslassie, Ataklti G.; Kassa, Abrham; Tefera, Zinaye; De Cock, Mieke; Elen, Jan – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2016
Identifying effective instructional approaches that stimulate students' critical thinking (CT) has been the focus of a large body of empirical research. However, there is little agreement on the instructional principles and procedures that are theoretically sound and empirically valid to developing both domain-specific and domain-general CT…

Schouteden, Wendy; Verburgh, An; Elen, Jan – Studies in Higher Education, 2016
The integration of research into teaching is a new and important focus in teaching-intensive institutions in higher education. Given the paucity of empirical insight into the research--teaching relationship in teaching-intensive institutions, teachers' research conceptions are studied as a first step in understanding the research--teaching…

Pöysä-Tarhonen, Johanna; Elen, Jan; Tarhonen, Pasi – Higher Education Research and Development, 2016
Current discussions in higher education and alumni training acknowledge the challenges training programs face in responding to the authentic needs of the labor market. In addition to academic knowledge, higher education institutions are expected to provide general twenty-first-century skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking,…

Tiruneh, Dawit T.; Verburgh, An; Elen, Jan – Higher Education Studies, 2014
Promoting students' critical thinking (CT) has been an essential goal of higher education. However, despite the various attempts to make CT a primary focus of higher education, there is little agreement regarding the conditions under which instruction could result in greater CT outcomes. In this review, we systematically examined current empirical…

Lust, Griet; Vandewaetere, Mieke; Elen, Jan; Clarebout, Geraldine – Learning Environments Research, 2014
Given the rising popularity of content management systems (CMSs) in higher education, we investigated how students use the available CMS tools, as well as whether the moment of using a CMS tool affects students' learning. This temporal dimension has been neglected in current research on CMS use. More insight into students' tool-use is…

Corradi, David M. J.; Elen, Jan; Schraepen, Beno; Clarebout, Geraldine – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
When learning with abstract and scientific multiple external representations (MERs), low prior knowledge learners are said to have difficulties in using these MERs to achieve conceptual understanding. Yet little is known about what these limitations precisely entail. In order to understand this, we presented 101 learners with low prior knowledge…

Juarez Collazo, Norma A.; Corradi, David; Elen, Jan; Clarebout, Geraldine – Higher Education Studies, 2014
Research has documented the use of tools in computer-based learning environments as problematic, that is, learners do not use the tools and when they do, they tend to do it suboptimally. This study attempts to disentangle cause and effect of this suboptimal tool use for experienced learners. More specifically, learner variables (metacognitive and…

Lust, Griet; Elen, Jan; Clarebout, Geraldine – Computers & Education, 2013
Given the rising popularity of content management systems (CMSs) in higher education, the current study investigates how students use tools in CMS supported courses. More specifically, the current study investigates how students regulate their tool-use throughout the course period by considering the moment tools are used. This temporal dimension…

Wu, Xiaoli; Lowyck, Joost; Sercu, Lies; Elen, Jan – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
In the field of second and foreign language learning, how various task characteristics affect language learning has been the focus of many recent studies. Much of this research examined the relationship between task characteristics and task performance without fully taking into account learner related variables. The present study aimed to assess…
