Reimagining Self-Regulated Learning: Helping Students Develop Metacognitive Awareness in Online and Hybrid Learning Environments

Duration: 1 hour

Host: Dr. Christopher Sessums, Director of Academic Affairs at D2L

Guests: Dr. Crystal Fulton, School of Information & Communication Studies at University College Dublin, Dr. James Matthews, School of Public Health, Physiotherapy & Sports Science at University College Dublin, Dr. Emma O’Neill, School of Veterinary Medicine at University College Dublin


Metacognition is broadly defined as awareness and control of one’s learning and is increasingly recognized as an important component of the learning process. For many institutions looking to create and support active learning environments with the aid of technology, the question becomes, in what ways can learning technologies like the learning management system (LMS) be leveraged to promote self-regulation and metacognitive skill development in students? What effect do these interventions have on student learning behaviors and academic outcomes? And how can positive interventions like these be positioned across an institution? To dive deeper into this topic, explore these questions and more, join Drs. Crystal Fulton, James Matthews, and Emma O’Neill from the University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland in this free webinar.

Key topics include:

  • The efficacy of VLE-based learning interventions in higher education
  • Developing self-regulation and metacognitive skills, including:
    • Planning
    • Self-monitoring
    • Self-evaluation
  • The use of assessment and feedback processes to develop these metacognitive skills
  • Producing of a proof of concept model for potential wider uptake throughout an institution
