Timing of Information Presentation in Interactive Digital Learning Material Affects Student's Learning Outcomes and Appreciation of the Material: a Pilot Study in the Domain of Nutritional Research Education.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

Abstract

Interactive digital learning material was developed – in the context of the EURRECA Network of Excellence - to assist students in obtaining insight into the principles of evaluation studies within nutritional research. The material contains a sequence of exercises which guide the student through the design and analysis of evaluation studies. For this, knowledge on research methodology is required which can be obtained by studying theory modules. To investigate the effect of timing of information presentation, two versions of the material were tested: a version in which all theory modules were presented before the exercises and a version in which the theory modules were presented just-in-time, when needed for a specific exercise. An inventory of students’ appreciation of the material and an analysis of the quality of the learning outcomes indicated that just-in-time presentation of the theory during the exercises enhanced students’ performance and appreciation of the material.
