Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Cognitive psychology

Fred Paas mainly investigates Cognitive load, Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Instructional design and Educational psychology. Fred Paas is studying Expertise reversal effect, which is a component of Cognitive load. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Schema, Collaborative learning, Applied psychology and Eye movement.

His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Working memory, Cognitive architecture, Eye tracking and Concept map. His Instructional design research incorporates themes from Mental load, Human–computer interaction, Learning environment, Observational learning and Educational technology. The various areas that Fred Paas examines in his Educational psychology study include Visualization and Learning theory.

His most cited work include:

  • Cognitive Architecture and Instructional Design (3573 citations)
  • Cognitive Load Theory and Instructional Design: Recent Developments (1527 citations)
  • Cognitive Load Measurement as a Means to Advance Cognitive Load Theory (1511 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Cognitive load, Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Educational psychology and Instructional design. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Cognitive load, Educational technology is strongly linked to Teaching method. The study incorporates disciplines such as Embodied cognition, Working memory, Short-term memory, Eye tracking and Gesture in addition to Cognitive psychology.

Fred Paas studies Cognition, namely Expertise reversal effect. His work carried out in the field of Educational psychology brings together such families of science as Learning theory, Transfer of training and Educational research. The Instructional design portion of his research involves studies in Multimedia and Mathematics education.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive load (77.03%)
  • Cognitive psychology (67.98%)
  • Cognition (52.90%)

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

  • Cognitive psychology (67.98%)
  • Cognitive load (77.03%)
  • Cognition (52.90%)

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

Fred Paas focuses on Cognitive psychology, Cognitive load, Cognition, Educational psychology and Working memory. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Comprehension, Cognitive architecture, Gesture and Haptic perception. His studies deal with areas such as Human–computer interaction and Embodied cognition as well as Cognitive load.

Fred Paas has included themes like Teaching method, Self-regulated learning and Nonverbal communication in his Cognition study. His studies in Educational psychology integrate themes in fields like Motion and Association. His study focuses on the intersection of Working memory and fields such as Instructional design with connections in the field of Mental effort and Control.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Cognitive Architecture and Instructional Design: 20 Years Later (157 citations)
  • Cognitive Architecture and Instructional Design: 20 Years Later (157 citations)
  • Supporting Self-Regulated Learning in Online Learning Environments and MOOCs: A Systematic Review (56 citations)

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

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Mathematics education

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cognition, Cognitive load, Cognitive psychology, Working memory and Educational psychology. His work deals with themes such as Learning support, Human motion, Gesture and Traditional classroom, which intersect with Cognition. His Cognitive load study combines topics in areas such as Embodied cognition, Human–computer interaction, Object, The Internet and Style.

The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in PsycINFO, Teaching method, Arousal and Worry. Fred Paas combines subjects such as Interactivity, Cognitive architecture, Spatial ability and Mental rotation with his study of Working memory. As a member of one scientific family, Fred Paas mostly works in the field of Educational psychology, focusing on Short-term memory and, on occasion, Long-term memory, Instructional design, Split attention effect and Elementary cognitive task.
