Susanne P. Lajoie, Sonia Faremo, Jeffrey Wiseman and Genevieve Gauthier
This paper presents recent research aimed at the improvement of instruction and assessment in science and medicine, focusing on the development of computer-based learning environments. Our research has examined the possibilities for these environments to support cognitive activities and processes in the context of problem solving, including self-regulation, hypothesis generation and revision, planning, self-assessment, and teaching others. The BioWorld, SICUn, and Case2Solve environments are discussed.
