Socially Constructed Self-Regulated Learning and Motivation Regulation in Collaborative Learning Groups


by Sanna Järvelä & Hanna Järvenoja — 2011

Background/Context: Most of the earlier empirical findings deal with motivation regulation in individual learning situations. This study identifies higher education students� socially constructed motivation regulation in collaborative learning and stresses that regulation of motivation is crucial in socially self-regulated learning because motivation is constantly shaped and reshaped as the activity unfolds.

Purpose of Study: The purpose of the study is to identity higher education students� socially constructed motivation regulation in collaborative learning This was studied by collecting data about the students� (N = 16) experiences of situation-specific social challenges in collaborative learning groups and observing what the students do to overcome these challenges.

Research Design: The study is a qualitative, multimethod study. Three methods�namely, adaptive instrument, video-tapings, and group interviews�were used to assess the individual- and group-level perspectives on those situations that the students felt were challenging and thus possibly activated joint regulation of motivation.

Conclusions: Motivation regulation can be identified as a socially constructed activity, and the importance of regulation of motivation in socially self-regulated learning is discussed.
