EARLI 2015

With just a month until EARLI 2015 in Cyprus, here’s where TIE lab members will be participating!

August 25th

Session A Symposium: Methodological and Analytical Issues in the use of Multi-Modal SRL Data

Challenges in capturing systematic changes in self-regulated learning by Dr. Lindsay McCardle

August 26th

Session D Symposium: Variations in regulation of cognitive, motivational and socioemotional processes in collaboration

Challenges in teamwork: Examining the effects of four different planning scripts by Dr. Allyson Hadwin

August 28th

Session J Symposium: Understanding individual participation to social regulation in collaborative learning

Dr. Allyson Hadwin is the discussant for this symposium.

Session M (Individual Papers): Collaborative and cooperative learning

Comparing the effectiveness of CSCL supports for shared task perceptions in shared regulation by Mariel Miller.


After a trip to Oulu, Finland, Dr. Hadwin returned to the research lab in Victoria with lots of new ideas for research! Her trip was filled with great discussions as well as chances to spend time with the Learning & Educational Technology (LET) Team, which is led by Dr. Sanna Järvelä. Dr. Hadwin had lots of time in the sun thanks to the sun always being out in the summer in Finland!

Jonathan Rush from the Department of Psychology at the University of Victoria came to give a really interesting and useful talk about intensive repeated measurement designs and analyses. Thanks to Dr. Scott Hofer for lending him to us. Now we have all kinds of ideas for potential collaboration and some new ideas for how to measure aspects of regulation!

Dr. Sanna Järvelä Visits the TIE Lab!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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

AERA 2015

At this year’s AERA in Chicago, Illinois, Lindsay McCardle led a round table full of interesting questions and discussions surrounding her paper, “Case study of a student athlete’s self-regulated learning in sport and academics”

Attached is the handout from her discussion.

Lindsay McCardle Successfully Defends her Dissertation!

2015-06-11 15.42.44On April 10th, Lindsay successfully defended her dissertation. Congratulations, Dr. Lindsay McCardle!

Dissertation Abstract

SRL has been posited to explain student-athletes concurrent success in sport and academics. The purpose of this dissertation was to empirically explore student-athletes’ self-regulated learning (SRL) in and across their academic and sport learning. Three manuscripts addressed two overarching goals: (a) explore the relation between SRL in sports and academics, and (b) explore methods of measuring SRL. First, in McCardle, Jonker, Elferink-Gemser, and Visscher’s (2014) study, competitive youth athletes (N = 215) self-reported on self-regulatory and motivational engagement in sport and academics. Findings revealed a positive relation between SRL in these contexts and more reported engagement of SRL in sports than in school. Second, McCardle (2014) conducted a case study of one student-athlete’s SRL in sport and school. Based on interviews, journals, and video-stimulated recall, the student-athlete demonstrated clear similarities in how he engaged SRL in both contexts. Some differences between sport and academic learning emerged, suggesting potential differences in support for SRL in the two contexts. This paper explored potential of qualitative measures of SRL in by combining multiple qualitative measures of SRL to create SRL profiles in sport and academics. Third, McCardle and Hadwin (2015) explored use of two types of self-reports considered event measures of SRL as they focused on single learning episodes (N = 263): (a) a quantitative questionnaire measure of SRL related to one study episode for an exam, and (b) a qualitative diary related to setting and attainment of one study goal. Contrasting these two methods revealed varying degrees of similarities in students’ self-reports. Together, this research highlights the potential of transfer of SRL across sport and academic domains and the importance of appropriate measures to capture event- and aptitude-based SRL and suggests several avenues for future research. To conclude, I suggest Winne and Hadwin’s (1998) model of SRL serve as a framework for researching SRL transfer with a focus on conditions. New research in transfer has potential for contributing to SRL research on how learners draw on previous regulatory experiences to adapt to new challenges.

Using Moodle to Enhance Student Engagement

Date & time: Friday, November 29, 2013 from 1:00pm to 2pm Location: Learning Systems Classroom LIB 034 – McPherson Library (Lower level) Register for this workshop 

Image This session will explore ways Moodle can be used to enhance your students’ engagement in individual and group work. If you’ve used Moodle before, come and see this simple twist on using Moodle activities and resources for coursework. If you’re new to Moodle, this session will be a great opportunity to find out what this technology can do for your class. This session will also cover some new features that will be available for instructors and students in the CourseSpaces learning management system. Facilitator: Mariel Miller, PhD Candidate, Educational Psychology & Leadership Studies

At this year’s 2013 CSSE confence, we presented a structured poster session on regulating learning in the face of challenge. Our papers in this symposium examined challenges learners encounter and the ways they attempt to adapt or regulate in the face of those challenges across a broad array of task contexts including collaborative learning and sport training. Papers targeted different aspects of SRL including (task perceptions, emotions, goals, and metacognition) and drew from a range of data sources including: self-report, reflective journals, chat records, online logfiles, interview data, and observation data.
