Dr. Sanna Järvelä Visits the TIE Lab!

On May 8th, the TIE lab was visited by Dr. Dr. Sanna Järvelä from the University of Oulu in Finland. Our lab spent the first half of the day in a research meeting where we reviewed past and current research, listened to the research Dr. Järvelä has been working on and then began to brainstorm for future projects! The day was very productive for the team and we are excited to see what comes out of our planning!

Lastly, two research team members were not in Victoria, so one came in via a robot, which allowed us to make use of some interesting technology

Dr. Allyson Hadwin Interviewed on CFAX

With the tax deadline looming, procrastination is prevalent in many Canadian households (it’s no coincidence spring cleaning happens at tax time). Allyson Hadwin was an invited guest on CFAX 1070′s The Drive with Terry Moore. The discussion focused on why we procrastinate, when procrastination is helpful and when it’s harmful, as well as tips and strategies for overcoming procrastination.

New Frontiers: Regulating Learning in CSCL (Educational Psychologist) now available online

 New Frontiers: Regulating Learning in CSCL  (Sanna Järvelä & Allyson F. Hadwin) now available online in the Special Issue: Theoretical Underpinnings of Successful Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning. Educational Psychologist, Vol. 48, No. 1, 01 Jan 2013.

Abstract: Despite intensive research in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) over the last decade, there is relatively little research about how groups and individuals in groups engage, sustain, support, and productively regulate collaborative processes. This article examines the role of regulatory processes in collaborative learning and how CSCL environments can be used for shared regulation of learning. First, we establish the importance of regulation processes and introduce three types of regulation contributing to successful collaboration: self-, co-, and socially shared regulation of learning. Second, we illuminate two strands of seemingly diverse research that lay an important foundation for supporting and researching regulation in CSCL contexts establishing that (a) computer-based pedagogical tools used to successfully support regulation in individual learning contexts can be leveraged for collaborative task contexts, and (b) computer-based tools for supporting collaborative knowledge construction can be leveraged for supporting regulatory processes. Finally, we draw on emerging research in our own programs of research to demonstrate how regulation can be supported and researched in CSCL environments. The article concludes by charting a course for future CSCL research focused on supporting regulated learning in collaborative task contexts.

Visiting Scholar Lecture: Jonna Malmberg, University of Oulu, Finland

Promoting Self-Regulated Learning in Finnish Classrooms

Tuesday, 9 October, 2012, 2:00PM – 3:00PM MacLaurin Building, Room D101

Jonna Malbmerg is a visiting doctoral student from the Learning and Educational Technology Research Unit (LET) at the University of Oulu in Finland.

She is interested in strategic and self-regulated learning in computer enhanced learning environments, with a specific focus on what it means to self-regulate learning in practice. She is also interested in how to identify self-regulated learning from other behaviour by using log file traces.

Join us on Tuesday, 9 October, 2012, 2:00PM – 3:00PM in MacLaurin Building, Room D101 where Jonna will be discussing promoting SRL in Finnish Classrooms

Interested in pursuing an MA or PhD in the area of self-regulated learning?

I will be actively seeking new MA and PhD graduate students for the Fall 2013. My current grant focuses on promoting adaptive regulation for the 21st century (PAR-21). We are examining tools and technologies to help learners be successful when they are working in solo or collaborative learning contexts. Much of our research is conducted in school and university contexts, but we are equally interested in lifelong learning that extends beyond formal school contexts. We are an active and dynamic research team. We collaborate extensively in conducting research, presenting conference papers, and publishing together and with international partners. For information on our programs in Educational Psychology, please consult the EPLS website or contact me to discuss your interests (Allyson Hadwin hadwin@uvic.ca). Having an academic background in psychology is viewed as an asset. Victoria, BC is a beautiful place to live and study.
