Egloff, Frank; Förster, Natalie; Souvignier, Elmar – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Teachers' beliefs about teaching have been found to affect students' learning growth. The aim of this study was to investigate effects of teachers' constructivist and direct-transmissive beliefs on learners' reading progress and whether these effects are influenced by students' ability. We measured constructivist and direct-transmissive beliefs of…

Testers, Laurent; Gegenfurtner, Andreas; van Geel, Rolf; Brand-Gruwel, Saskia – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
An important goal of educational designers is to achieve long-term transfer of learning that is the learner's application of newly acquired competencies. Extensive research during more than a century shows that especially in formal educational settings this fundamental aspect of education often occurs poorly or not at all, leading to what is…

Fraenken, Judith; Wosnitza, Marold – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
In the past decades, schools have become more autonomous and open learning environments. It therefore seems increasingly important for educational research to also consider contextual influences by including autonomous learning settings in its investigations. Studying the positive activating emotion of pride seems useful to learn more about the…

Vekkaila, Jenna; Virtanen, Viivi; Kukkola, Jani; Frick, Liezel; Pyhältö, Kirsi – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Knowledge creation is at the core of scientific endeavour. As early career researchers, doctoral students take part in knowledge creation through engaging in various knowledge practices and make their original contribution to knowledge, and become experts in their particular domain. However, our understanding of what doctoral knowledge practices…

Eckstein, Boris – Frontline Learning Research, 2019
Classroom disturbances impair the quality of teaching and learning, and they can be a source of strain for both teachers and students. Some studies indicate, however, that not everyone involved gets equally disturbed by the same occurrences. Altogether, there is still little solid knowledge about the teachers' and the students' subjective…

Hämäläinen, Raija; De Wever, Bram; Waaramaa, Teija; Laukkanen, Anne-Maria; Lämsä, Joni – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
In this study, we introduce new insights into prosodic analyses as an emerging method to study what happens in classrooms interactions. We claim that the prosodic aspects (features of speech such as intonation, volume and pace) of talk are important, but under-represented in the learning sciences. These prosodic aspects may be used to complement,…

Puurtinen, Marjaana – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
The application of new methods and measures in domains with few methodological traditions of that kind often presents researchers with a challenge; they may have to take up the task of developing their understanding of the phenomenon while, at the same time, creating the practices for its study. For us, the method was eye tracking, and the topic,…

Donker, Monika H.; van Gog, Tamara; Mainhard, M. Tim – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
Although the association between teacher-student relations, teacher emotions, and burnout has been proven on a general level, we do not know the exact processes underlying these associations. Recently there has been a call for intra-individual process measures that assess what happens from moment-to-moment in class in order to better understand…

van Atteveldt, Nienke; van Kesteren, Marlieke T. R.; Braams, Barbara; Krabbendam, Lydia – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
Modern neuroscience research, including neuroimaging techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), has provided valuable insights that advanced our understanding of brain development and learning processes significantly. However, there is a lively discussion about whether and how these insights can be meaningful to the…

Van Laer, Stijn; Elen, Jan – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
In recent decades, conceptualizations and operationalizations of self-regulated learning (SRL) have shifted from SRL as an aptitude to SRL as an event. Alongside this shift, increased technological capability has introduced computer log files to the investigation of SRL, uncovering new research avenues. One such avenue investigates the…

Roland, Nathalie; Mierop, Adrien; Frenay, Mariane; Corneille, Olivier – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
Ajzen and Dasgupta (2015) recently invited complementing Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) measures with measures borrowed from implicit cognition research. In this study, we examined for the first time such combination, and we did so to predict academic persistence. Specifically, 169 first-year college students answered a TPB questionnaire and…

Smets, Wouter; Struyven, Katrien – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
Differentiated instruction is a teaching philosophy and practice that deals with responding appropriately to student heterogeneity. In order to gain deep understanding of this complex concept, research methodology is challenged to use appropriate data collection and data analysis. The aim of this paper is to reflect on how system theory may be…

Kammerer, Yvonne; Brand-Gruwel, Saskia; Jarodzka, Halszka – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
Recent technological developments related to the World Wide Web including mobile computing, social media, and online videos are shaping the way we learn. As argued in the present commentary, the majority of educational psychological research that has examined how individuals learn by searching the Web, however, has not kept up with this pace.…

Soto, Christian; Gutierrez de Blume, Antonio P.; Asún, Rodrigo; Jacovina, Matthew; Vásquez, Claudio – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
The purpose of this research endeavor was to develop and validate a new measurement tool predicated on previous research to assess learners' metacomprehension during reading. In two separate studies with Chilean undergraduate students (N = 923), we demonstrate the versatility and utility of our proposed Metacomprehension Inventory (MI). In Study…

Filius, Renée M.; de Kleijn, Renske A. M.; Uijl, Sabine G.; Prins, Frans J.; van Rijen, Harold V. M.; Grobbee, Diederick E. – Frontline Learning Research, 2018
Higher education aims for deep learning and increasingly uses a specific form of online education: Small Private Online Courses (SPOCs). To overcome challenges that instructors face in order to promote deep learning through that format, the use of feedback may have significant potential. We interviewed eleven instructors and four students and…
