To help students learn, we must understand how they think. My research focuses on the cognitive science of student thinking and learning and its implications for instruction.

Logan Fiorella

Associate Professor

My main interest is how students and instructors can increase understanding in STEM. I have several lines of research on this topic.

One line of research focuses on learning strategies, such as how students select, regulate, and execute strategies during learning, and the factors contributing to students’ strategy use. Another line of research focuses on instructional methods, such as how to use graphics to support learning, how social cues can be incorporated within online and video-based instruction, and how to teach students to regulate their own learning more effectively.

My areas of expertise include cognition and instruction, learning strategies, multimedia learning, and problem-solving transfer.
