Coached problem solving is known to be effective for teaching cognitive skills. Simple forms of coached problem solving are used in many ITS. This paper first considers how university physics can be taught via coached problem solving. It then discusses how coached problem solving can be extended to support two other forms of learning: conceptual learning and meta learning.
