Metacognition is a set of active mental processes that allows users to monitor, regulate, and direct their personal cognitive strategies. Improving Student Information Search traces the impact of a tutorial on education graduate students' problem-solving in online research databases. The tutorial centres on idea tactics developed by Bates that represent metacognitive strategies designed to improve information search outcomes. The first half of the book explores the role of metacognition in problem-solving, especially for education graduate students. It also discusses the use of metacognitive scaffolds for improving students' problem-solving. The second half of the book presents the mixed method study, including the development of the tutorial, its impact on seven graduate students' search behaviour and outcomes, and suggestions for adapting the tutorial for other users. provides metacognitive strategies to improve students' information search outcomes incorporates tips to enhance database search skills in digital libraries includes seminal studies on information behaviour

Book Description :

This edited book adopts a cognitive perspective to provide breadth and depth to state-of-the-art research related to understanding, analyzing, predicting and improving one of the most prominent and important classes of behavior of modern humans, information search. It is timely as the broader research area of cognitive computing and cognitive technology have recently attracted much attention, and there has been a surge in interest to develop systems and technology that are more compatible with human cognitive abilities. Divided into three interlocking sections, the first introduces the foundational concepts of information search from a cognitive computing perspective to highlight the research questions and approaches that are shared among the contributing authors. Relevant concepts from psychology, information and computing sciences are addressed. The second section discusses methods and tools that are used to understand and predict information search behavior and how the cognitive perspective can provide unique insights into the complexities of the behavior in various contexts. The final part highlights a number of areas of applications of which education and training, collaboration and conversational search interfaces are important ones. Understanding and Improving Information Search - A Cognitive Approach includes contributions from cognitive psychologists, information and computing scientists around the globe, including researchers from Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany), the US, and Asia (India, Japan), providing their unique but coherent perspectives to the core issues and questions most relevant to our current understanding of information search behavior and improving information search.

Book Description :

Research on stress and coping phenomena has been among the most widely studied topics in social and behavioral sciences during the past several decades. Notwithstanding, the authors in this book have expanded the base of stress and coping research by providing a valuable reference source that includes guidelines and frameworks as well as empirical findings related to the application of mixed methods approaches to the study of stress and coping. This book is intended not only for stress and coping researchers, but also for social and behavioral science researchers at various levels—from students, instructors, and advisors to applied researchers, research methodologists, and theorists. The 15 chapters are divided into three distinct sections. The five chapters in Section I focus mainly on topics pertaining to the conceptual and theoretical aspects of mixed methods research in the study of stress and coping. The five chapters in Section II address the major methodological issues of mixed methods research. Section III presents five empirical studies of mixed methods research as applied to the field of stress and coping. This book illustrates the perspectives of innovative interconnections in the application of mixed methods research to the study of stress and coping. It also provides readers with new ways of designing and evaluating strategies and programs that aim to reduce stress and improve coping mechanisms.
