Description: Conducting and analyzing interdisciplinary research on the role of new technology in the development of advanced expertise and performance motivation. See, in particular, the publications "Teaching general problem-solving skills is not a substitute for, or a viable addition to, teaching mathematics," by Sweller, Clark, and Kirschner; excerpts from What works in distance learning: Guidelines; and letters published in Educational Psychologist such as "Why minimally guided teaching techniques do not work"; "Scaffolding and achievement in problem-based and inquiry learning"; and "Is direct instruction an answer to the right question?" Research projects include Assessment of Tactical and Critical Thinking Skills and Training Models, and Tools for Advanced Learning, both collaborations with UCLA's National Center for Research on Evaluation Standards and Student Testing (CRESST); as well as Pedagogical Catalyst Review of the Impact of Expertise and the Adaptability Benefit of Guided Experiential Learning (GEL).
