Teaching and Learning
Learning can be superficial or deep. 3 If knowledge is only memorised (superficial learning) it is soon forgotten, and may never affect the way that person does her/his work. If the learner is made to use the new knowledge actively, the learning becomes deep. The learner connects the new knowledge to the concepts that s/he already has, and

Online and face‐to‐face learning: Evidence from students
1.1. Related literature. Online learning is a form of distance education which mainly involves internet‐based education where courses are offered synchronously (i.e. live sessions online) and/or asynchronously (i.e. students access course materials online in their own time, which is associated with the more traditional distance education).
Lifelong learning and nurses’ continuing professional
Continuing professional development (CPD) is central to nurses’ lifelong learning and constitutes a vital aspect for keeping nurses’ knowledge and skills up-to-date. While we know about the need for nurses’ continuing professional development, less is known about how nurses experience and perceive continuing professional development.
The COVID-19 pandemic and E-learning: challenges and
E-learning is the best option available to ensure that epidemics do not spread, as it guarantees spatial distancing despite the challenges and studied figures, which indicate that students are less likely to benefit from this type of education (Lizcano et al. .
Students’ perception of online learning during the COVID
E-learning was considered less effective than face-to-face learning in terms of increasing skills (P < .001) and social competences (P < .001). Students assessed that they were less active during online classes compared to traditional classes (P < .001). E-learning was rated as enjoyable by 73% of respondents.
Learning and memory
Learning is a prerequisite for the formation of memory traces and is thought to be dependent on synaptic plasticity mediated by LTP and LTD, which also represent key mechanisms in the effects of NBS on brain functions. This has not only rendered NBS valuable for the investigation of neuroplastic processes associated with learning and memory but
Transitioning to E-Learning during the COVID-19 …
Research in Learning Technology, 28. 10.25304/rlt.v28.2410. Kaur N, Dwivedi D, Arora J, Gandhi A. Study of the effectiveness of e-learning to conventional teaching in medical undergraduates amid COVID-19 pandemic. National Journal of Physiology, Pharmacy and Pharmacology. 2020; 10 (7):563–567. doi: 10.5455/njppp.2020.10.04096202028042020.
Learning Styles: A Review of Theory, Application, and Best
LEARNING STYLES. A benchmark definition of “learning styles” is “characteristic cognitive, effective, and psychosocial behaviors that serve as relatively stable indicators of how learners perceive, interact with, and respond to the learning environment. 10 Learning styles are considered by many to be one factor of success in higher education. . Confounding research …
A Review of Self-regulated Learning: Six Models and Four
Self-regulated learning (SRL) includes the cognitive, metacognitive, behavioral, motivational, and emotional/affective aspects of learning. It is, therefore, an extraordinary umbrella under which a considerable number of variables that influence learning (e.g., self-efficacy, volition, cognitive strategies) are studied within a comprehensive and holistic approach.
Academic and emotional effects of online learning during
Impact of COVID-19 on students’ learning experience. The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus began in late 2019 and spread around the world rapidly within months (Du Toit, 2020; Zhou et al., 2020).On March 11th, 2020, The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the public health emergency caused by the new coronavirus an international …
Child Development and Early Learning
The domains of child development and early learning are discussed in different terms and categorized in different ways in the various fields and disciplines that are involved in research, practice, and policy related to children from birth through age 8. To organize the discussion in this report, the committee elected to use the approach and overarching terms depicted in Figure 4-1.
An effective blended online teaching and learning …
The shift to distance teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic brought about a real challenge for both instructors and students. To face these difficulties in teaching undergraduate Chemistry courses at the University of Santo Tomas, a blended learning strategy in the context of teaching and learning of Physical Chemistry 1 and Analytical …
The Influences of Emotion on Learning and Memory
Subsequently, learning process sends relevant information to higher brain regions such as the prefrontal cortex to perform tertiary cognition process that allows planning for future based on past experiences, stored in LTM. In other words, the brain’s neurodevelopment trajectory and “wiring up” activations show that there is a genetically
Analyzing the relationship between learning styles (Kolb
Learning is a very complex variable that is influenced by several factors such as intelligence, motivation, proper environment, domestic factors, community, school quality, and teacher quality. Similarly, the learning style of learners is …
Early Language Learning and Literacy: Neuroscience
In the arena of language, the neural signatures of learning can be documented at a remarkably early point in development, and these early measures predict performance in children’s language and pre-reading abilities in the second, third, and fifth year of life, a finding with theoretical and educational import.
Virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic: What are
Learning had been better in younger age group than older because of their preexisting utilization, greater confidence, and high efficiency in used technological tools for learning purposes. Elders perceived technical skill as a barrier for online learning because of lack of (a) familiarity with newer technology, (b) motivation, and (c) training
Barriers to Online Learning in the Time of COVID-19: A
Multimedia learning tools should be engaging and entertaining, but at the same time, devoid of clutter and distracting content . Enhancing interactivity, use of practice exercises, repetition of study material, and providing feedback are recommended to improve learning outcomes . Medical students who previously spent fewer hours studying online
Machine Learning: Algorithms, Real-World Applications and
Q-learning: Q-learning is a model-free reinforcement learning algorithm for learning the quality of behaviors that tell an agent what action to take under what conditions . It does not need a model of the environment (hence the term “model-free”), and it can deal with stochastic transitions and rewards without the need for adaptations.
Cognitive and learning processes in children with Down
The primary purpose of this investigation was to study cognitive and learning processes in children with Down syndrome using a recently developed instrument, the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC). The results obtained from 20 children with Down syndrome were compared with those of 20 y …
Microteaching, an efficient technique for learning
Learning is a change in behavior, which is brought about by activity, training, or experiencing at any age. When the learner is more experienced, learning becomes more effective. The most important quality of the participants of microteaching sessions is the ability to give and receive constructive feedback with an open mind and achieves
