Research Study: Self-Regulated Learning

Research Study: Self-regulated learning in massive open online courses
Massive Open Online Courses are still very new and it is important to conduct research to try to understand how they support different types of learning. At the Caledonian Academy, we are interested in self-regulated learning outside formal learning contexts and we have designed a study, which aims to surface, describe and systematise the activities and strategies that adult learners use to self-regulate their learning in the context of the Change 2011 massive open online course (MOOC).

We are looking for volunteers to participate in this study. Anyone who has signed up for the Change11 MOOC is welcome to participate. Participation in the study will involve completion of an online questionnaire (in January/February 2012) and participation in a telephone or Skype interview (in or around March 2012).

Sign up to participate in the study at: If you have any questions, please email . For further information see the blog post at Data collected will be accessible only by the research team at Glasgow Caledonian University (Professor Allison Littlejohn, Dr Anoush Margaryan and Dr Colin Milligan). All data will be anonymised prior to publication and participants will not be identified (or identifiable). Participants are free to withdraw from the study at any time. [Comment]

Prognostications on the 21st century and higher education
AK, Multilitteratus Incognitus
I was reading a number of posts last week on Change11 on the topic of the 21st century University. Given how far things had progressed in the previous century it's hard to prognosticate on anything that's more than 10 years in lieu of a guess or prophecy of what is to come, here's more of a wish: let's all just learn to work together!This past year I had attended a few conferences, both in person and virtually, and I've met colleagues that have been in ....

Between the By-Road and the Main Road: Bold Schools: Part I - Learner as Knowmad
Group members, Best content in change11 | Diigo - Groups
Comments:When we conceive of learner as knowmad, the traditional roles assigned to teacher and student become less relevant, necessary, and linear.  The knowmad is mobile and learns with anybody, anywhere, anytime.  As such, the place we now know as school may be too small and perhaps unable to contain the range of learning engagements necessary for those with nomadic tendencies.  Rather, think of the extended community--one that is physical, virtual, and blended-- as potential learning ....
