Authoring Themselves as Mathematical Learners: Students' Experiences of Learning to Learn High School MathematicsDownload
High school mathematics students often complete homework and study for unit tests without support to consider how these actions could contribute to their mathematical learning. However, students can, through the process of learning to learn mathematics, to bring into view how they learn...
A frequently replicated finding is that the frequency of words affects their phonetic shape. In English, high frequency words have been shown to contain more centralized vowels than low frequency words. By contrast, a recent study on vowel articulation in German has shown a contrary finding. At...
We introduce one instance of a game-based assessment designed to measure students’ self-regulated learning choices. We describe our overarching measurement strategy and we present Posterlet, an assessment game in which students design posters and learn graphic design principles from feedback. We...
Hope has been described as the ability to envision a future in which one wishes to participate. A burgeoning body of research consistently points to the vital role hope plays in learning and successful change. Employing narrative inquiry (Clandinin and Connelly, 2000), in this paper, we explore...

SSHRC IG awarded 2012: Verbs are harder than nouns for children to learn. This research project will test two central hypotheses about verb learning in children: First, in experimental situations, children benefit from co-speech gesture as shown by enhanced verb learning. Second, in everyday...
Developing a Psychological Model of Learning in 3D Virtual Environments: Guiding Principles for EducatorsDownload
Insight Grant awarded 2016: Worldwide, approx. 683 million young people between the ages of 10 and 25 are registered virtual worlds. Virtual environments have the potential to provide instruction encompassing the attributes that educational research has determined increase student motivation: ...
Faculty in Canadian undergraduate nursing programs have come to rely on preceptorship as the primary model for teaching and learning during the final clinical course. A focused ethnography was completed in order to examine undergraduate nursing students’ experience of rural hospital preceptorship...
