Hierarchical Learning Ensembles, Gregory A. Dilisi, Steven J. Eppell, Jan Upton

Gregory A. DiLisi

We describe the design and implementation of our Hierarchical Learning Ensemble (HLE) model, a pedagogy that assembles interdisciplinary teams of graduate, undergraduate, and secondary-level students to solve science and engineering problems. Our goal is to sensitize undergraduates to working in heterogeneous groups and thus better prepare them for the workplace. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.

Establishing Problem-Solving Habits In Introductory Science Courses, Gregory A. Dilisi, Jennifer E. Eulberg, James F. Lanese

Students crave problem-solving strategies that promise increased achievement on tests. Student ambitions seem to align with teacher goals, yet students resist using these strategies for various reasons. We seek to establish a pedagogy modifying student behavior so they are more likely to use any strategy a teacher deems useful. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.
