Technology support for self regulated learning: Assisting novice
college students in large classes
This presentation will summarize several studies evaluating the
value of a lecture support system (pre-lecture access to a
lecture outline and post-lecture access to an expert summary and
an audio recording) and a textbook review system (an adaptive
system based on chapter topics interacting with the stored
summary of student topic performance) on examination performance
in large Introductory Psychology courses.
The format for this session will involve a formal presentation
and demonstration. Participants will be encouraged to react to
the research findings and discuss applications that do require
the specialized software used in conducting the research.
