Normative and intentional development of teacher social-emotional skills and their relationships with student achievement and socialemotional skills. Ghent University
Teachers have been ascribed a central role in studentsU+2019 learning and development. Especially how
teachers relate to their students was proposed as a key factor explaining learning effects and
teacher effectiveness. However, recent meta-analytic research suggests that teachersU+2019 self-efficacy

Stimulating Secure Attachment Development in Middle Childhood: A Transdiagnostic Intervention to Enhance At Risk Children's Resilience. KU Leuven
The last decennia, there has been a significant increase in the number of children and adolescents that develop mental health disorders. Moreover, once children develop a disorder in middle childhood, they are at elevated risk for mental health problems throughout further childhood and adolescence. There is a general consensus that this apparently growing mental health crisis reflects the fact that many new trends in societal distress ...
The density of matter in a nucleus is extremely high: about 10000 billions more dense than gold, which in turn is 20 times more dense than water. In nature, only collapsed stars and black holes have a higher density. Nevertheless, it is possible to further compress nuclear matter: nuclei can be squeezed and elongated like a spring, of course in three dimensions. Oscillations that are created in this way are called compression modes of the ...
Dementia currently affects more than 47 million people worldwide, is forecasted to triple by 2050 and is one of the most costly disorders in Belgium. There is good scientific evidence that the cognitive impairments associated with the development of dementia can be lessened or even reverse because of the plasticity of the brain (rewiring). Recent research has shown that engaging in regular physical activity combined with performing ...
Speeding Up the Learning Process: A Multimodal Neuroimaging Investigation into the Acceleration of Motor Memory Consolidation KU Leuven
Memory consolidation – the process by which recently acquired memories are transformed into stable, long-term memory traces – has long been considered to be a relatively slow process that can span hours to days. Pioneering work over the last decade has demonstrated that this consolidation process can be accelerated if the learned information was consistent with pre-existing knowledge (referred to as cognitive schemata). While considerable ...
Investigating the impact of conversational and cognitive strategic support for promoting secondary school studentsU+2019 argumentative writing: Experimental studies in authentic classrooms Ghent University
More than ever, effective writing and proficient argumentation are imperative for full participation
in our 21st century society. This proposal combines both, as prior (inter)national findings call
attention to the fact that secondary school studentsU+2019 writing, and argumentative writing in
particular, is inadequately developed. Therefore, the main aim is to gain insight in how to support all
secondary students ...
