Learning from multiple complementary perspectives: A systematic review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

4 Scopus citations


Individuals often face contexts in which they must learn from multiple perspectives, but relatively little research has specifically examined how learners integrate information when the perspectives are complementary in nature. This chapter presents a systematic review that explores the trends and findings across extant research conducted on learning from complementary perspectives. A comprehensive, multi-pronged search approach identified 20 unique articles examining learning from multiple complementary perspectives. Key information (e.g., focus, theoretical frame(s), sample, perspectives, measures, and findings) from the identified studies is presented along with trends and patterns across the body of work. Critical gaps that need further examination are also forwarded to propel future research in this emerging area.
