Abstract and Keywords
In this chapter, we present several cognitive learning theories relevant for novice, expert, and advanced learning, and we discuss their implications for the instructional design and delivery of university management courses. We describe how evidence-based instructional strategies can be derived from cognitive learning theories, and then we apply the strategies to commonly used teaching practices in management courses. We also address a number of challenges that we believe have impeded evidence-based teaching practice.
Keywords: evidence-based teaching, cognitive learning theory, instructional strategies, cognitive load, learning, scaffolding, feedback, meta-cognition, critical thinking, expertise, adaptive expertise
