Paper Selected for the Journal of Learning Sciences Best Paper Award
The paper titled “Why Students Learn More from Dialogue–than Monologue–Videos: Analyses of Peer Interactions,” written by Michelene Chi and co-authored with Seokmin Kang and David Yaghmourian, has been selected for the inaugural Best Paper Published in the Journal of the Learning Sciences Award for the 2017 volume.
The award will be announced and presented during the Open Business Meeting of the International Conference of the Learning Sciences in London.
The paper was chosen as a best paper through a two-step process that consisted of review and selection of a small group of papers by the editors and associate editors and then adjudicated by an external panel of reviewers who are leaders in the field of the learning sciences.
In this inaugural year, the external panel that evaluated nominated papers made a request to confer two awards because there was a tie between two papers that represent different but important research traditions within the field.
