New Perspectives on Integrating Self-Regulated Learning at School


Self-regulated learning (SRL) is the process through which individuals control their own learning, from the cognitive, metacognitive, behavioral, emotional, and motivational points of view. It is an important interdisciplinary competence that has increasingly gained attention in the past couple of decades because it leads to improved learning and it helps people to cope with the challenges of life-long-learning in the knowledge society.

Whereas the field of SRL has been widely investigated, it is important to draw a comprehensive picture of the SRL contribution at school settings, in particular by analyzing what features and conditions make a promising arena for SRL development in primary schools through secondary grades.

This issue aims to bring together a series of papers addressing theoretical, methodological, and practical issues or reviews of research program on SRL and to discuss new perspectives of integrating SRL at school and classrooms, taking into account the students, teachers, and the learning context. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Important components of self-regulated learning (e.g., motivation, metacognition, contextual, and/or behavioral)
  • Development of self-regulatory processes of young students
  • Supporting teachers to promote SRL in school
  • Fostering SRL through information communication technology (ICT)
  • Social environments to enhance SRL in school
  • Advanced programs to support SRL in different ages and disciplines
  • SRL and students with different learning abilities
  • Methodologies to assess SRL in classroom and school contexts
