Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In recent years, scholars have argued that traditional learning no longer achieves its goals because learning time is used inefficiently. The present goal is to demonstrate a way to more effectively utilize learning time in order to maximize knowledge. The model suggests a production function of education that includes interdependency between lecturing and practicing hours and which should be considered when the goal is optimal time allocation between them. This approach may improve the learning performances of various academic institutions that very often struggle with the question of how to optimally implement the components of academic activities. One may assume that the effectiveness of lecturing time positively impacts practice time and exercise hours provided by teaching assistants. It will also affect the length of each activity and the rotation between lecturing and practicing. The present approach demonstrates several production functions of education with different divisions of time between lecturing and practicing.
