SIG 16 Metacognition and Self-Regulated Learning


Mission Statement

The SIG 16 brings together researchers from the field of metacognition and self-regulated learning to investigate the power of metacognition and self-regulation for learning in many areas and examines the interplay between both. Many unresolved issues remain; therefore, SIG16 aims to understand the integrative framework of metacognition and self-regulated learning and provides a forum for discussing theoretical and empirical work, such as controversial issues related to them.

We want to contribute to the following:

  • Provide scientific evidence on the importance of metacognition and self-regulated learning in its many forms
  • Design learning environments for effective metacognitive and self-regulated learning
  • Foster international collaborations, connecting researchers from metacognition and self-regulated learning to create a more significant impact
  • Support early-career researchers
  • Disseminate research findings for practitioners (e.g., teachers) and the society
