The value of self-regulated learning in developing effective learning communities [PowerPoint presentation]
Jackman, W. Marc
The concept of independence that is central to self-regulated learning (SRL) seems at variance with that of interdependence, the focus of learning communities; however, a hybridization of the two conceptualizations is not inimical. Learning communities are noted for their ability to enhance engagement, improve achievement, and value for authentic learning. Teachers are well are of the value of SRL in education; however, the extent to which it is perceived to be critical to the success of effective learning communities is taken for granted. This position paper argues for the incorporation of SRL within the learning community pedagogic framework. In this vein, the value and operationalization of SRL will be explored through the explication of SRL studies implemented in real classrooms. Particular emphasis will be placed on the ways in which the aims of SRL and learning community pedagogies meet and diverge, and the manner in which the two might be best integrated in enhancing the latter. The following questions will be explored: 1) Where do the aims of SRL and learning communities meet and diverge? 2) How can SRL enhance learning communities? and 3) How might the two learning pedagogies be integrated?
