Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Pedagogy
  • Cognition

Paul A. Kirschner mainly investigates Collaborative learning, Pedagogy, Computer-supported collaborative learning, Mathematics education and Knowledge management. His study in Collaborative learning is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Social psychology, Cognitive load, Cognition, Cooperative learning and Educational technology. His work carried out in the field of Cognition brings together such families of science as Cognitive psychology, Task and Conceptual framework.

His studies in Pedagogy integrate themes in fields like Digital native, Perception, Medical education and Competence. His work deals with themes such as Higher education and Human multitasking, which intersect with Mathematics education. Paul A. Kirschner interconnects Context, Construct and Negotiation in the investigation of issues within Knowledge management.

His most cited work include:

  • Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching (4078 citations)
  • Identifying the pitfalls for social interaction in computer-supported collaborative learning environments: a review of the research (1100 citations)
  • Facebook® and academic performance (905 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Mathematics education, Collaborative learning, Pedagogy, Cognition and Educational technology. Paul A. Kirschner studies Instructional design which is a part of Mathematics education. His research integrates issues of Cooperative learning and Social relation, Social psychology in his study of Collaborative learning.

His Pedagogy study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Competence. His work focuses on many connections between Cognition and other disciplines, such as Cognitive psychology, that overlap with his field of interest in Cognitive load. He studied Educational technology and Experiential learning that intersect with Active learning.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematics education (23.19%)
  • Collaborative learning (20.39%)
  • Pedagogy (15.46%)

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

  • Mathematics education (23.19%)
  • Cognition (18.09%)
  • Collaborative learning (20.39%)

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

Paul A. Kirschner focuses on Mathematics education, Cognition, Collaborative learning, Cognitive psychology and Cooperative learning. His Mathematics education research incorporates themes from Task and Set. His Cognition research includes themes of Factor structure, Medical education and Distance education.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognitive load, Multidisciplinary approach, Educational psychology and Synchronicity in addition to Collaborative learning. His Cognitive psychology research incorporates elements of Triad, Social emotional learning, Self-regulated learning and Low arousal theory. He combines subjects such as Knowledge level and Educational technology with his study of Cooperative learning.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Problem-based learning (47 citations)
  • Linking learning behavior analytics and learning science concepts: Designing a learning analytics dashboard for feedback to support learning regulation (42 citations)
  • Linking learning behavior analytics and learning science concepts: Designing a learning analytics dashboard for feedback to support learning regulation (42 citations)

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

  • Law
  • Cognition
  • Social science

His primary areas of investigation include Cognition, Mathematics education, Collaborative learning, Distance education and Human–computer interaction. His Cognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Quality, Factor structure, Medical education and Educational systems. The Mathematics education study combines topics in areas such as Distributed Practice, Task and Set.

The various areas that Paul A. Kirschner examines in his Collaborative learning study include Group work, Cognitive psychology, Educational psychology, Synchronicity and Cooperative learning. His Affordance study in the realm of Cognitive psychology interacts with subjects such as Perspective. His work investigates the relationship between Cooperative learning and topics such as Educational technology that intersect with problems in Knowledge management, Expertise reversal effect, Teaching method and Self-regulated learning.
