Promoting Self-Explanation to Improve Mathematics Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Instructional Design Principles

Promotion of self-explanations is a recommended study technique and instructional practice. 
It has the capacity to help improve procedural and conceptual understanding and to support transfer. In some cases the literature indicates, however, null- or even negative results.
The paper considers the literature on self-explanations in mathematics, but the principles, as well as the general idea of self-explanations as a useful pedagogical tool, should be relevant to other subjects as well.
