  • Research focus
    • Research and teaching in the area of learning sciences and educational technology .
    • Long-term research, producing new scientific knowledge and generating innovative, theory-based pedagogical applications.
  • Research goals
    • Conceptual analysis of motivation and self-regulation in learning.
    • Empirical studies integrated to the individual, social, shared and interactive processes of learning with and without technology.
    • Development and validation of theory-based process oriented methods and analyses.

  • Theoretical background
    • Theoretical grounding is in sociocognitive and constructivist approaches on learning (Brandsford, Brown & Cocking, 2000) following the recent theoretical and methodological development in learning sciences (Sawyer, 2006) .
    • Special expertise lies in self-regulated learning theory (Boekaerts, Pintrich & Zeidner, 2000) and research on motivation (Volet & Järvelä, 2000) as well as socially shared cognition (Resnick, 1991) .
