Dr. Catrambone's research interests include: 

  • Creating examples to help learners form meaningful and generalizable solution procedures. I and the students in my lab have explored this issue in domains ranging from probability and physics to ballet. 
  • The use of task analysis techniques for identifying what a person needs to learn in order to solve problems or carry out procedures in some domain. 
  • Using information from task analyses to guide the construction of teaching and training materials including computer-based (multimedia) instructional environments. 
  • Exploring technology such as animations and embodied conversational agents (ECAs) for improving interfaces and helping people learn and carry out tasks more easily. 
  • Analogical Reasoning
