EARLI 2011 Conference Paper Abstracts

Next week I’ll be attending the 2011 Conference of the European Association of Research in Learning and Instruction (EARLI), which is taking place at the University of Exeter in the UK this year.  I’ve spent a few hours today going through the conference programme and selecting the talks I’d like to attend.   EARLI is a large conference and there are many more interesting papers and sessions than one could physically attend, so I have compiled below a list of the papers that I found particularly interesting and would like to follow up on. I specify the key aspect of interest in the brackets.
