Klepsch, Melina; Seufert, Tina – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Instructional design deals with the optimization of learning processes. To achieve this, three aspects need to be considered: (1) the learning task itself, (2) the design of the learning material, and (3) the activation of the learner's cognitive processes during learning. Based on Cognitive Load Theory, learners also need to deal with the task…

Widmann, Andreas; Mulder, Regina H. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Teams become a key resource for organisations to meet different challenges. Thus a high team performance is essential in work context. The aim of this study was to get a deeper understanding of meaningful team learning and team mental models in educational contexts, by analysing the effect of team learning behaviours (TLBs) on the development of…

Fyfe, Emily R.; Brown, Sarah A. – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Students' problem-solving success depends on more than their knowledge and abilities. One factor that may play a role is the teacher's expectations of students. The current study focused on how a teacher's explicitly-stated expectations influence students' ability to learn from corrective feedback during problem solving. On the one hand, setting…

Wu, Pai-Hsing; Wu, Hsin-Kai – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
According to policy documents and research studies, one key objective of science education is to develop students' inquiry abilities; however, relatively little is known about the interplay among students' inquiry abilities, the dimensions of their engagement, and their inquiry-related curiosity. The purpose of this study is to explore how four…

Loibl, Katharina; Tillema, Marcel; Rummel, Nikol; van Gog, Tamara – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Research on productive failure suggests that attempting to solve a problem prior to instruction facilitates conceptual understanding compared to receiving instruction prior to problem solving. The assumptions are that during the problem-solving phase, students activate their prior knowledge, become aware of their knowledge gaps, and discover deep…

Ouyang, Fan; Chang, Yu-Hui; Scharber, Cassandra; Jiao, Pengcheng; Huang, Tianhui – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Education is under a radical transformation in the current innovation-driven knowledge age. The instructor-student collaborative partnership has the potential to transform education from traditional instructor-directed, transmissive teaching to active, participatory student-centered learning. However, relevant inquiry indicates the conceptual,…

Hu, Yanjuan; Zhao, Xiantong; van Veen, Klaas – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Training researchers represents a substantially deeply international activity for higher education, and yet the transition into independence, a critical aim of doctoral education, remains a challenge for both supervisors and doctoral students, especially those from different cultural backgrounds. Interactions between Chinese doctoral students and…

Mateos, Mar; Rijlaarsdam, Gert; Martín, Elena; Cuevas, Isabel; Van den Bergh, Huub; Solari, Mariana – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This paper presents a secondary analysis of data collected during an intervention study in which students learnt to synthesise pairs of texts presenting opposite views on controversial issues. The original intervention study included two treatments and examined the effects of two instruction conditions when instructional materials and tasks were…

Glaser, Manuela; Schwan, Stephan – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Multimedia learning scenarios in which a picture is the main focus often use combinations of verbal and visual cueing. Based on models of picture processing and multimedia learning, the present study examined the effect of verbal and visual cueing on two basic aspects of pictorial learning: retention and localization of pictorial elements. Videos…

Lachner, Andreas; Neuburg, Carmen – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Recent studies documented that the act of writing explanations improves students' learning only to a limited extent, as students attend less frequently to genre-typical features of comprehensibility during writing explanations (i.e., cohesion). In this study, we investigated whether learning by writing explanations can be enhanced when students…

Lehmann, Thomas; Rott, Benjamin; Schmidt-Borcherding, Florian – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
The present study aims to investigate the effects of writing tasks and prompts on knowledge integration across domains. One hundred pre-service teachers were asked to read and develop a global understanding of textbook excerpts from the core domains of their professional knowledge: content knowledge (CK), pedagogical knowledge (PK), and…

Eriksson, Kimmo; Helenius, Ola; Ryve, Andreas – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Can instructional quality be measured using TIMSS items on how often certain instructional practices are used in the mathematics classroom? We focused on three instructional practices that have been the topics of longstanding debates in the educational literature: memorizing formulas, listening to the teacher, and relating mathematics to daily…

Martin, Nicole D.; Dornfeld Tissenbaum, Catherine; Gnesdilow, Dana; Puntambekar, Sadhana – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Designing learning environments with "distributed scaffolding"--support distributed across different instructional tools, activities, and the teacher--can help support students' different needs, but a critical question is how the design incorporates the hallmark feature of responsive support. While most material scaffolds in…

Gidalevich, Stella; Kramarski, Bracha – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Research has indicated that students can be taught self-regulated learning (SRL) in scaffolding programs focusing on a fixed continuous practice (e.g., metacognitive question prompts). However, the fading role of scaffolding to prepare autonomous learning is often an overlooked component. A unique approach for fading is suggested that offers a…

Greene, Jeffrey A.; Freed, Rebekah; Sawyer, R. Keith – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
There is a lack of research and practice focused on how to foster higher-order processing, such as creative performance, within higher education settings. To address this gap in research, we chose to study pedagogical practices in schools of art and design, where one of the intended learning outcomes is creativity. Based upon data gathered as part…
