«Small Interventions to Support Student Self-regulation Online »




Rene F. Kizilcec


Students who engage in self-regulated learning tend to achieve better outcomes in educational settings, especially in online or hybrid learning contexts that offer students more flexibility. It is therefore important to support student self-regulation in these contexts and ideally do so in a scalable manner. I will be presenting findings from a set of studies that investigated self-regulated learning in online courses and a variety of simple intervention activities to support self-regulation at scale.
