Encouraging Epistemological Exploration: Impacts on Undergraduates' Retention and Application of Course Material2009
AbstractStudents bring an intact, if unarticulated, epistemological perspective into the classroom that influences how they receive and process new information. In this study, students who explored a wider range of perspectives had significantly improved learning outcomes as measured in 3 domains: retention of specific content, retention of general themes, and application of the course content to other courses, mass media information, and their sense of self.
