Les Laboratoires CLLE et OCTOGONE vous invitent à deux conférences le 9 novembre de 14h à 16h en salle D30.
 A cette occasion, Robert et Elizabeth Lorch (chercheurs en psychologie à l' Université du Kentucky-USA) nous présenteront leurs travaux de recherche respectifs.
 R. Lorch est titulaire d'une Chaire d'Excellence Pierre de Fermat pour l'année 2011-2012 et est accueilli au laboratoire CLLE. 
E. Lorch est chercheure en visite, accueillie par le laboratoire OCTOGONE.

 Voici quelques informations supplémentaires concernant leurs présentations :

"Teaching Experimental Design to 10-Year-Olds" - Robert F. Lorch

Klahr and his colleagues have developed a brief teaching intervention that has been relatively successful at teaching young students the principles of designing simple experiments. Although the intervention is brief, it is relatively complex from a cognitive perspective. 
We have been conducting research to deconstruct the teaching protocol and identify its educationally critical components. 
Two large-scale, classroom-based experiments will be described that test the contributions of four components of the teaching intervention:

(1) inclusion of a direct instruction component in the protocol;
(2) the types of examples used to illustrate and explain the characteristics of a valid experiment;
(3) the availability of opportunities to construct experiments in the domain of instruction; and
(4) the importance of testing understanding shortly after the instructional intervention.

All of these factors influence learning in our studies. We will describe how learning is affected and speculate about the underlying mechanisms.

"The Story Comprehension of Children with ADHD". Elizabeth Lorch

Many children diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) experience significant academic difficulties. Such academic problems may stem for higher-order cognitive deficits in applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information. In order to understand how potential higher-order cognitive processing deficits of children with ADHD contribute to academic difficulties, my research group has investigated the representation of complex stories by these children. In this talk, I will discuss this program of research.
