Expertise

My research is aimed at different aspects in (collaborative) learning with computers. How do people learn? What kind of interaction processes enhance collaboration and learning? How can a computer support collaboration? How do different representations, such as texts and diagrams, influence collaboration and learning processes? How should a representation be designed to be effective for learning?
