ABSTRACT Resumen:Cada vez mayor número de investigaciones subrayan la importancia que tiene, de cara a lograr que los estudiantes sean aprendices autómonos y exitosos, el que sean capaces de regular su propio proceso de aprendizaje, así como la fuerte relación existente entre el aprendizaje autorregulado (que incluye tres componentes: (1) las estrategias metacognitivas; (2) las estrategias cognitivas; y (3) la dirección y control del esfuerzo), la motivación y el rendimiento académico de los escolares. Estos estudios destacan, además, que para promover en los estudiantes este tipo de aprendizaje no basta con que conozcan estos tipos de recursos. Es necesario, además, que estén motivados tanto para utilizarlos como para regular su cognición y su esfuerzo.Abstract:A growing number of studies show the relationship between self-regulated learning (that consist of (1) metacognitive strategies; (2) cognitive strategies; and (3) management and control of effort), motivation and academic performance. To promote student regulated and autonomous learning and positive achievement, however, knowledge metacognitive and cognitive strategies is not enought. Further, students must be motivated to use the strategies as well as control their cognition and effort.

    ABSTRACT: Effective learning under institutional conditions requires, first, that students are aware of task demands and of their intentions of how, or even whether, to meet those demands, and, second, that they assess realistically, and exert control over, their own cognitive resources. The fulfilment of such conditions involves a sophisticated kind of metacognition, here called metalearning. The present paper describes a series of studies that collectively explicate the development and role of metalearning in the learning and study processes of secondary and tertiary students. Ability patterns, locus of control, variety and quality of certain non-school experiences, and extent and kind of motivation all seem to be involved in the development of metalearning capability. A model of student learning is then described, in which personal and situational factors are linked to performance by three main approaches to learning: deep, achieving, and surface. These approaches involve varying degrees of metalearning and lead to qualitatively different learning outcomes. An intervention study on improving student learning is described that tests important aspects of the model, and further implications for teaching and research are suggested.

    ABSTRACT: In the past decade self-regulated learning (SRL) has been studied extensively. It has been defined as a complex interactive process involving not only cognitive self-regulation but also motivational self-regulation. An increasing body of knowledge attests that cognitive self-regulation can be taught and that students who use these self-regulatory skills obtain better grades in the content domain to which these skills apply. However, students who self-regulate on one occasion may not self-regulate their studying on another occasion, despite the acknowledged benefits. It is argued that self-regulated learning can be domain-specific or domain-transcending, and that competent performers in a specific domain rely on different types of prior knowledge related to that domain.In this paper a conceptual review on self-regulated learning is offered on. Four major points will be addressed. First, six types of prior knowledge will be described. Second, it is documented that SRL can be a complex, demanding and deliberate activity, but also a simple, habitual and automatic activity. Third, it will be argued that we have covered some ground demonstrating that cognitive self-regulation can be taught. Fourth, motivational self-regulation will be addressed in an attempt to clarify its position in the six component model of self-regulated learning. Finally, our intervention program will be briefly described in an attempt to demonstrate how the various design recommendations given in the previous sections can be put to the test.

    ABSTRACT: Recent research in the areas of cognitive psychology and student learning involves changed conceptions of the natures of learning and of teaching, with promising implications for the enhancement of tertiary teaching. A model of learning is presented, proposing that the teaching context, students' approaches to learning, and the outcomes of learning, form a system in a state of equilibrium. Three approaches to enhancing teaching follow from the model: additive, interactive, and contextual. Additive approaches ignore both students' approaches to learning and the institutional context, and are relatively ineffective. Genuine improvements in student learning involve interactive and contextual approaches to teaching, which can be activated through appropriate staff development.
