My research foci are quite varied, the primary one being the study of the "self," specifically self-regulated learning and self-efficacy. Other areas of interest include the use of technology in teaching and learning, the development and use of assessment in teaching and learning, the emotional dimension of the learning process, and transformative learning. A final area of interest is pre-service teacher education and in-service teacher professional development, specifically teacher cognition. My current project is an examination of how self-regulated learning promotes the critical analysis skills of medical residents participating in a journal club. A related area of focus in my present research is the impact of a computer-supported collaborative learning environment on learners' self-regulated learning processes.
