   Abstract = {BACKGROUND: The volume of information that physicians must
             learn is increasing; yet, trainee educational time is
             limited. Many experts propose using trainees' learning
             preferences to guide teaching. However, data regarding
             predominant learning preferences within pediatrics are
             limited. AIM: Identify predominant learning preferences
             among pediatric residents in a Residency Training Program.
             METHODS: The Visual-Aural-Read/Write-Kinesthetic (VARK)
             questionnaire and Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI) were
             administered anonymously to 50 pediatric residents. RESULTS:
             Learning style assessments were completed by 50 pediatric
             residents. Residents were significantly more likely to be
             accommodating on the Kolb LSI, which is consistent with an
             interactive learning preference (p < 0.01); 30%
             demonstrated a multimodal preference on the Kolb LSI (Figure
             1). VARK assessments demonstrated that 45 (90%) respondents
             were kinesthetic, which is also consistent with a
             significant preference for interactive learning
             (p < 0.01). Forty (80%) were found to be multimodal on
             the VARK (Figure 1). There was no association between
             learning preference and the residents' anticipated career
             choice or level of training. CONCLUSIONS: The predominant
             learning preferences among a cohort of pediatric residents
             from a single training program were consistent with a
             preference for interactive learning, suggesting that some
             trainees may benefit from supplementation of educational
             curricula with additional interactive experiences. Continued
             investigation is needed in this area to assess the
             effectiveness of adapting teaching techniques to individual
             learning preferences.},

   Abstract = {Duke University was the site of one of the first large scale
             calculus reform projects funded by the National Science
             Foundation (NSF) in the post-Tulane conference era. In the
             seven years during which Project CALC has first taught, it
             has undergone numerous revisions. In this paper, we will
             discuss these revisions and the reasons behind them. In
             particular, we will describe the changes we have made over
             the last seven years in the: mathematical content; text;
             software and hardware; emphasis on computational skill;
             amount and nature of student writing; amount and nature of
             student homework; and grading, testing and assessment of
             student learning. The reasons for these changes include:
             examination of the results of our formal evaluation; the
             attitudes of students; and the attitudes of faculty. © 1996

   Abstract = {The purpose of this study was to examine the differences
             between the metacognitive behaviors exhibited by experts and
             novices. Of particular interest was the degree to which
             subjects managed or controlled their behavior and the extent
             to which solutions, particularly by experts, were schema
             driven. Nine novices (college freshman) and six experts
             (first and second year graduate students in mathematics)
             were asked to think aloud while solving four mathematics
             problems: (1) a routine problem; (2) a problem with more
             than one obvious path; (3) a nonroutine problem that
             involved the use of the skills used in the routine problem;
             and (4) a problem with insufficient or contradictory
             information. The verbal protocols provide evidence that:1.
             experts in this study possessed and used schemas to solve
             problems but schema use did not fully or adequately
             characterize expertise; 2. of the two aspects of
             metacognition - beliefs about cognition and control of
             cognition - beliefs played a more important role than
             control; and 3. assessment of work is not in and of itself
             useful; assessments must be acted on. © 1993 Taylor and
