Professors Awarded for STEM SRL and XR Research

Drs. Roger Azevedo (PI), Tova Michalsky, Sanna Järvelä, Engin Ader, and Alexander Gröschner, were awarded an EARLI EFG from the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) and the Jacobs Foundation to support their international travel over a period of two years to work on examining STEM teachers’ capacity to teach self-regulated learning (SRL) and the impact of extended reality (XR).

This exciting project will facilitate the exchange of ideas, immersive virtual learning technologies and analytical tools to radically consider the use of XR in preparing teachers to learn, understand, and practice SRL and use SRL learning in their classrooms. The goal is to design an XR framework and collaborative immersive virtual system where (1) teachers from all over the world can learn, practice, share, discuss, and reflect (e.g., analyze their own performance data about emotion regulation) on their own SRL and (2) interdisciplinary researchers from all over the world can collect rich trace data on how teachers’ develop SRL competencies and how they used them in their professional practice to foster their students’ academic achievement in STEM and other disciplines.
