From August 15 to 17, Aishah Bakhtiar, Elizabeth Webster, and Sarah Davis attended the International Conference on Motivation in Aarhus, Denmark.
Following is a list of work in which we were a part of:
- Bakhtiar, A., Hadwin, A.F., & Jarvenoja, H. (2018, August). Contextual differences of students’ motivation regulation strategies in a semester-long collaborative project. Paper to be presented at the International Conference on Motivation. Aarhus, Denmark.
- Kurki, K., Järvenoja, H., Törmänen, T., Bakhtiar, A., & Järvelä S. (2018, August). Emotion Regulation in collaboration: Combining individual emotional experiences and group level regulation. Paper presented as part of Processes Matter? Exploring the Role of Motivation and Emotions in the Process of Learning Symposium at the 2018 biannual meeting of the International Conference on Motivation. Aarhus, Denmark.
- Webster, E., Hadwin, A. F., & Davis, S. K. (2018, August). Planning and emotion regulation during collaborative tasks. Paper presented as part of Processes Matter? Exploring the Role of Motivation and Emotions in the Process of Learning Symposium at the 2018 biannual meeting of the International Conference on Motivation. Aarhus, Denmark.
- Davis, S. K., Hadwin, A. F., & Edwards, R. L. (2018, August). Self-regulated learning and mental health in university students. Poster presented at the 2018 biannual meeting of the International Conference on Motivation. Aarhus, Denmark.
Althought the program was shorter than in 2016, we all enjoyed catching up with old research friends and meeting new ones! Overall, the conference included discussions on current methological advances and challenges, and calling for more interdisciplinary work to study motivation, emotions, and self-regulation of learning.

Inspiring motivation and emotion researchers

Starting in September 2018, we will be welcoming Sarah Greco into the TIE lab!
Sarah is a first year MA candidate in Educational Psychology at the University of Victoria. She recently graduated from Queen’s University with a BA Honours in Psychology, and a minor in English Literature. She also obtained a Certificate in Business at the Smith School of Business during her time at Queen’s. Currently, Sarah is interested in researching how learning strategies and self-regulation can affect students’ achievement of learning outcomes.
Starting in September 2018, we will be welcoming Ramin Rostampour into the TIE lab!
Ramin has a Master’s degree in General Psychology. As an educational psychologist, he is broadly interested in adopting unified approaches to psychology and integrated personality theories to know how individual differences in behavior, cognition, motivation, and emotion affect various aspects of learning. Particularly, he is curious to understand how cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies can help learners regulate their psychological resources with respect to demands of the tasks and of learning environments. He also aims to employ psycho-education to foster adaptive regulatory strategies in learners via reforming their internal psychological working models.
On Monday, July 9th, the team spent the afternoon discussing the planned research tasks and activities under the new PAR-IT grant. We translated our research agenda unto a lovely infographic below.
The team is very excited to move forward and continue contribute to theory, research, and practice!
For more information about the research, feel free to contact our research team.
Our lab members had so much fun bringing Marijn out to Gonzales beach this weekend to enjoy the warm Victoria weather and volleyball!
After some fun beach time, the team then head back to Allyson’s house for a BBQ, stuffing ourselves with burgers, summer fruits, and chips! Thanks to Michael (second from left pictured below), Allyson discovered a new favourite — burger with hummus!
We are pleased to announce that a visiting scholar from the University of Twente, Marijn Wijga, is visiting the TIE lab from July 1 to July 14. Marijn’s visit is sponsored by the European Association for Research in Leaning and Instruction (EARLI) through the EARLI Mentoring Grant.
Marijn’s PhD project focuses on the extent to which self- and social regulated learning of team members in organizations enhance team innovation. A longitudinal mixed method design is used to study individual employees and teams while working at innovative products over a period of time to assess how the dynamic interaction between team self- and social regulation in relation to team innovativeness changes over time. Broadly, however, Marijn’s research interest is in understanding how individual and context characteristics influence individuals’ opportunity to realize their potential.
We have a lot activities scheduled for Marijn’s visit. One of them is a presentation by Marijn herself on her research work, scheduled on July 10 from 1.30 to 2.30pm (Location to be announced). Feel free to contact us if you are interested in connecting with Marijn.
