Creativity in problem solving: integrating two different views of insight

Per Øystein Haavold, Bharath Sriraman
2021 ZDM: Mathematics Education  
We apply both a problem solving model and a creativity model in analyzing students' work on the two problems, in order to compare and contrast aspects of insight during the students' work.  ...  We pursue this aim by studying how expert and novice mathematics students worked on two ill-defined mathematical problems.  ...  The main findings of studies in the 'expert-novice' genre were that experts and novices differed in their problem solving strategies because of the following: 1.  ...

Information problem solving by experts and novices: analysis of a complex cognitive skill

Saskia Brand-Gruwel, Iwan Wopereis, Yvonne Vermetten
2005 Computers in Human Behavior  
In this research the complex cognitive skill of information problem solving is analysed. Experts and novices were observed while solving an information problem.  ...  In our point of view, however, explicit and intensive education is required. In order to design education that fosters the information problem solving skill, a skill decomposition is required.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to thank Annemarie Cremers for her valuable comments on the first draft of this paper.  ...

Understanding managerial problem-solving, knowledge use and information processing: Investigating stages from school to the workplace

Jos A.R. Arts, Wim H. Gijselaers, Henny P.A. Boshuizen
2006 Contemporary Educational Psychology  
We studied nine diVerent levels of expertise: from novice student groups, to graduates and expert groups. Participants were asked to diagnose and solve business cases.  ...  For students and junior experts, the results suggest a weak use (transfer) of knowledge and ineVective problem-solving approaches.  ...  Solving problems in diVerent and new contexts Improving knowledge use through practical experiences We have demonstrated that the balance between theoretical and dynamical knowledge shifted as graduates  ...

Teaching Insights from Adult Learning Theory

Cassandra Volpe Horii
2007 Journal of Veterinary Medical Education  
This article provides an overview of three learning models that yield insights into teaching practice-novice/expert behaviors, cognitive development, and learning styles-along with ways in which instructors  ...  can draw on these models in course planning and classroom teaching.  ...  We can expect to ask the experts how they are organizing their knowledge, and to follow their examples; we can search out the problem-solving or other step-wise processes that the experts use and adopt  ...
