Project description

Although empirical and theoretical work has suggestedpositive effects of work experiences on learning outcomes, to date, it remains unclear how this relationship originates. Drawing from research andtheory on knowledge formation, I posit a model, which can answer this need. I aim to investigate the explanatory value of the model by conducting threeseries of studies using the reflection paradigm.
