We are looking forward to seeing you at the webinar!
Researching socially shared regulation in learning
Advanced learning technologies have contributed to progress in learning sciences research. There is growing interest in methodological developments using technological tools and multimodal methods for understanding learning processes (e.g. physiological measures). My research group has been working on collecting multimodal and multichannel data for understanding the complex process of collaborative learning. We have been especially interested in how groups, and individuals in groups, can be supported to engage in, sustain, and productively regulate collaborative processes for better learning. In this presentation, I will introduce the theoretical progress in understanding socially shared regulation (SSRL) in learning and review how we have been collecting, analyzing and triangulating data about the regulation in collaborative learning. I will discuss the current methodological challenges and opportunities learning analytics has helped us trace and model SSRL processes.
Sanna Järvelä is a professor in learning sciences and head of the Learning and Educational Technology Research Unit (LET) and director of the LeaF research infrastructure in the University of Oulu, Finland. Her main research interests deal with self-regulated learning, computer-supported collaborative learning and on-line learning processes. Järvelä and her research group are internationally recognized in theoretical and methodological advancement of social aspects of self-regulated learning (socially shared regulation in learning) and processes oriented and multimodal research methods. She has published more than 150 scientific papers in international refereed journals and about 50 book chapters and three edited books, and her Google Scholar h-index is 55. She has been editor in many journals (e.g. Learning and Instruction) and currently Chief Editor in the International Journal of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning. Järvelä is the member of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters, the past EARLI (European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction) president and invited member of the expert group of the OECD's PISA 2024 'Learning in the Digital World'.
