Our Team

Dr. Allyson Hadwin

This is me

I am an Associate Professor in Educational Psychology at the University of Victoria and co-director of the  Technology Integration and Evaluation (TIE) research lab. My research focuses on the social aspects of self-regulated learning, as well as the ways technologies can support self, shared-regulation and co-regulation . Our model of self-regulated learning (Winne & Hadwin, 1998) frames much of my work. I use multiple methodologies to explore the dynamic and social nature of regulated learning as it evolves over time and through interaction with others. I supervise a dynamic team of graduate students who constantly challenge me and create wonderful spaces for collaboration.

Lizz's PhotoElizabeth (Lizz) Webster (PhD Candidate)
Lizz is a PhD candidate in Educational Psychology. Lizz obtained her BA in Psychology from the University of Waterloo. Her Masters research examined the emotions university students experienced as well as how they regulated those emotions during independent studying.Her interests lie in the area of self-regulated learning, with a specific focus on emotion regulation in both individual and collaborative contexts. Her doctoral research extends this work to investigate emotion regulation during computer-supported collaborative learning tasks.

Aishah Bakhtiar (PhD Candidate)
Aishah Bakhtiar is a PhD Candidate in Educational Psychology at University of Victoria, Canada. She obtained her Masters’ degree in Developmental Psychology at Memorial University of Newfoundland. While there, she was involved in research surrounding the developmental aspects of mathematical cognition and interests in mathematics. Her current PhD research extends her interest in academic motivation; her doctoral research examine learners’ regulation of motivation and emotions in the context of collaborative learning. In that work, she aims to (a) develop a theoretical framework that describes the process of regulating motivation and emotions in situ, (b) contextualize learners’ choices of motivation regulation strategies, and (c) capture the dynamic transactions that take place as learners are regulating as a team.

Prior to joining the TIE lab in 2015, Sarah worked as a teacher and school counsellor in private and public schools in both rural and urban settings in Canada, the US, and England. These rich experiences contributed to her research interests in self-regulated learning, mental health, learning analytics, and measurement and evaluation. Her doctoral research examines how students leverage self-regulated learning to optimize their mental health during academic challenges.

Annie Wu (MA Candidate)
Annie is a first year MA candidate in Education Psychology. She obtained her BA Honors in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy at University of Victoria. Also, she received a diploma in Intercultural Education at UVic at the same time. Prior to joining the TIE lab, Annie worked as an Activity Coordinator at a residential care centre to plan and design all kinds of activities for seniors. Her research interests lie in the area of social and emotional self-regulations, with a special focus on how cultures may have impacts on them.

Jiexing (Estelle) Hu (MA Candidate)

Jiexing is a second year MA candidate in Educational Psychology. She graduated from East China Normal University with a BS in Psychology. Jiexing now has a research interest in first-year undergraduate students’ collaborative learning processes, challenges they might meet, and the regulatory strategies they use in these procedures.
