Bringing Self-Regulated Learning to Classrooms through Research-Practice Partnerships

A seminar presented by PEDAL and the Faculty of Education’s Psychology & Education group

This seminar will focus on the role of research-practice partnerships in bringing self-regulated learning to classrooms. In her talk, Dr Perry will review the research-practice framework in two separate research projects, addressing some of the challenges associated with traditional approaches to conducting research, challenging notions of control and fidelity.

This seminar hopes to provoke fundamental questions about the role research should play in improving educational practice.

Dr. Nancy Perry is the Dorothy Lam Chair in Special Education and Professor of Educational and Counselling Psychology and Special Education at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada.

Her research has two main goals:
  • understanding how classroom processes are implicated in children’s development of self-regulated learning (SRL);
  • working with teachers to design activities and structure interactions with students that support SRL .

Dr. Perry is a main contributor to our understanding that young children can and do regulate for learning, and how classroom tasks, instructional practices, and interpersonal relationships influence their SRL . She is also a leader in the development and use of measures, beyond self-report tools, that reveal children’s self-regulation in situ.

Refreshments will be available.

This talk is part of the PEDAL - Research Centre for Play in Education, Development & Learning series.
