Welcome to the SeLFI-Lab
Welcome to the work area Promotion of School Learning Processes. In our projects we investigate the
- Learning processes of students with and without learning difficulties
- Effectiveness of instructional formats and teaching methods
- Learning processes of teachers
We are interested in cognitive and motivational processes in learning, and how learners differ in this. A focus in some of our projects is the role of self-regulation in learning.
In many studies we test the effectiveness of interventions to promote such learning processes. In doing so, we use technology-based opportunities to further enhance the implementation of these interventions.
Most of our studies focus on students with individual support needs. We try to find out how their learning processes differ and how they can be effectively supported.
In our studies with teachers, we examine how teachers think about learning and what influences their classroom actions. Teachers‘ learning processes inform what interventions are most effective for teachers to support their professionalization.
SeLFI LAB is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of an Emmy Noether Group and is part of the IDeA Research Center (Individual Development and Adaptive Education of Children at Risk) for the study of developmental and learning processes in children within the first twelve years of life.
