The value of self-regulated learning in developing effective learning communities [PowerPoint presentation]
The concept of independence that is central to self-regulated learning (SRL) seems at variance with that of interdependence, the focus of learning communities; however, a hybridization of the two conceptualizations is not ...
Spatial ability for university biology education
(Springer Verlag, 2019)
Studying and pursuing careers of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields demand spatial ability. Completing a university degree in biology is no exception. The aim of this study is to summarize key ...
Learning-by-employing: the value of commitment under uncertainty
(Univ Chicago Press, 2016-07)
We analyze commitment to employment in an environment in which an infinitely lived firm faces a sequence of finitely lived workers who differ in their ability. A worker's ability is initially unknown, and a worker's effort ...
Learning-by-employing: the value of commitment
We analyze a dynamic principal–agent model where an infinitely-lived principal faces a sequence of finitely-lived agents who differ in their ability to produce output. The ability of an agent is initially unknown to both ...
Neophobia is negatively related to reversal learning ability in females of a generalist bird of prey, the Chimango Caracara, Milvago chimango
In an ever-changing environment, the ability to adapt choices to new conditions is essential for daily living and ultimately, for survival. Behavioural flexibility allows animals to maximise survival and reproduction in ...
Power-law distribution in a learning process: competition, learning and natural selection
(Elsevier B.V., 2005-01-01)
In the present work, we propose a model for the statistical distribution of people versus number of steps acquired by them in a learning process, based on competition, learning and natural selection. We consider that ...

A self-learning simulated annealing algorithm for global optimizations of electromagnetic devices
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2000-07-01)
A self-learning simulated annealing algorithm is developed by combining the characteristics of simulated annealing and domain elimination methods. The algorithm is validated by using a standard mathematical function and ...
