International Workshop on Self-Regulated Learning in Responsive Open Learning Environments
The workshop "SRL-ROLE 2011" is held in the context of the 11th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies ICALT.
Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) is guided by meta-cognition, strategic action (planning, monitoring, and evaluating progress), and motivation to learn. Self-regulated learners are aware of their academic strengths and weaknesses, and they have a repertoire of strategies they appropriately apply to tackle the day-to-day challenges of academic tasks. Personalization of SRL based on psycho-pedagogical learning theories permits individualization of learning components and their combination to generate new environments and functionalities, which can be adapted by learners to meet their own needs. To address current demands of true lifelong and personalized learning this workshop focuses on Self-Regulated Learning in Responsive Open Learning Environments which refer to e-learning environments offering breakthrough levels of effectiveness, flexibility, user-control and mass-individualization.
The target audience of the workshop consists of researchers, developers, and users of learning environments who are interested in improving the self-regulated learning experience in this context. This workshop should attract people dealing with SRL in learning environments who want to present their ideas and results, discuss applicable models and techniques, and start new collaboration.
Interesting research questions to be addressed in position papers include:
- Which theories and models are important for SRL?
- How can self-regulation competences be taught, learned, and controlled?
- How can responsive learning environments foster SRL?
- How can technological and collaborative strategies support self-regulated learning processes?
