Dorn Co-Authors Chapter in Book on Learning Environments
Brian Dorn, assistant professor of computer science and multimedia web design and development, recently published a chapter in the second edition of Theoretical Foundations of Learning Environments edited by David Jonassen and Susan Land (New York, Routledge).
Dorn and his co-authors Janet Kolodner, Jakita Owensby Thomas, and Mark Guzdial contributed a chapter entitled "Theory and Practice of Case-Based Learning Aids." This chapter surveys 20 years of research into the design and implementation of computational educational tools inspired by Case-Based Reasoning (CBR). Originally applied in the field of Artificial Intelligence, CBR has proven valuable in also understanding how humans learn, and the chapter illustrates how CBR can guide innovation in the design of new educational technology.
The chapter is part of the larger collection that provides readers with an introduction to "the major pedagogical and psychological theories and their implications for the design of new learning environments for schools, universities, and corporations."
