Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a seminar presented by ARC (Australia Research Council) Research Fellow and lecturer in education, Dr Deborah Pino-Pasternak.

Self-Regulated Learning (SRL), understood as children’s ability to direct their attention, thoughts, emotions, and behaviours to the demands of the learning environment, has been shown to be a strong predictor of children’s academic achievement and general adaptation to school. In this seminar, Deborah will discuss recent findings of her team’s research on SRL in connection to the areas of literacy and numeracy, during the first two years of schooling in WA, with a specific focus on how both home and classroom contexts in Early Childhood can promote children’s development as independent, motivated, and regulated learners. This research project on Contextual Supports for the Early Development of Self-Regulated Learning is funded by the Australian Research Council ‘s Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) and Murdoch University.
