Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Conference article in proceeding › Academic › peer-review
Using a showcase based on learning processes of 1080 students in a blended introductory quantitative course, we analyse the use of worked examples by students. Our method is to combine demographic and trace data from technology
enhanced systems with self-reports of several contemporary social-cognitive theories. We find that the same maladaptive learning orientations that play a role in worked examples learning theories as to explain the effectiveness of worked
examples do predict the use of worked examples: this time in the role of individual learning dispositions.
