Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Pedagogy
  • Educational technology

Her primary scientific interests are in Problem-based learning, Construct, Cooperative learning, Mathematics education and Collaborative learning. Her Problem-based learning study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Knowledge building, Active learning and Facilitator. Her Active learning research entails a greater understanding of Pedagogy.

Her Construct study combines topics in areas such as Curriculum & Instruction, Curriculum and Science teaching. Her research in Mathematics education tackles topics such as Apprenticeship which are related to areas like Authentic science, Academic achievement and Formative assessment. In her work, Team learning, Experiential learning, Multimedia and Human–computer interaction is strongly intertwined with Educational technology, which is a subfield of Collaborative learning.

Her most cited work include:

  • Problem-Based Learning: What and How Do Students Learn?. (2550 citations)
  • Scaffolding and Achievement in Problem-Based and Inquiry Learning: A Response to Kirschner, Sweller, and Clark (2006) (1405 citations)
  • Goals and Strategies of a Problem-based Learning Facilitator (495 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Cindy E. Hmelo-Silver mostly deals with Mathematics education, Collaborative learning, Problem-based learning, Knowledge management and Educational technology. Her study in the field of Educational psychology, Learning sciences and Teaching method also crosses realms of Function. Her research in the fields of Computer-supported collaborative learning overlaps with other disciplines such as Engineering ethics.

Her Problem-based learning study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cooperative learning, Facilitator and Artificial intelligence. Her study in Knowledge management is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Conceptual change, Synchronous learning, Learning environment, Hypermedia and Construct. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Human–computer interaction, Complex system are connected with Cognitive science and other disciplines.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematics education (25.84%)
  • Collaborative learning (22.49%)
  • Problem-based learning (20.57%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Problem-based learning (20.57%)
  • Collaborative learning (22.49%)
  • Human–computer interaction (10.05%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her main research concerns Problem-based learning, Collaborative learning, Human–computer interaction, Mathematics education and Computer-supported collaborative learning. She has included themes like Instructional design, Teacher education and Dialogic in her Problem-based learning study. Her work deals with themes such as Cooperative learning, Multimodality, Facilitator and Literacy, which intersect with Dialogic.

Her research on Human–computer interaction also deals with topics like

  • Game based learning which is related to area like Collaborative Problem Solving,
  • Context that connect with fields like Construct,
  • Learning environment and related Collaborative game, Frame, Phenomenon and Science education. Her Group work study, which is part of a larger body of work in Mathematics education, is frequently linked to Foundation, bridging the gap between disciplines. In her research on the topic of Computer-supported collaborative learning, Diversity and Domain knowledge is strongly related with Educational research.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Ten years of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: A meta-analysis of CSCL in STEM education during 2005–2014 (31 citations)
  • Scaffolding and supporting use of information for ambitious learning practices (13 citations)
  • Facilitating Problem‐Based Learning (12 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Pedagogy
  • Educational technology

Problem-based learning, Human–computer interaction, Mathematics education, Affordance and Collaborative learning are her primary areas of study. Her Problem-based learning research integrates issues from Multimedia, Professional development and Teacher education. The various areas that she examines in her Human–computer interaction study include Game based learning and Unpacking.

Her Educational technology and Cooperative learning study are her primary interests in Mathematics education. Her Affordance study incorporates themes from Learning environment and Social relation. Her Collaborative learning research incorporates elements of Interactive Learning and Educational research.
