Enhancing Self-Regulated Learning by Writing Learning Protocols
Nuckles, Matthias; Hubner, Sandra; Renkl, Alexander
Learning and Instruction, v19 n3 p259-271 Jun 2009
Learning protocols are a self-guided way of writing that allows for elaboration and reflection on learning content. In an experimental study (N = 103), we supported protocol writing with prompts to elicit important strategies as postulated by a cyclical model of self-regulated learning. Students received either (a) no prompts, (b) cognitive prompts, (c) metacognitive prompts, (d) mixed prompts without, or (e) including prompts for planning of remedial strategies. Prompting all essential sub-processes of self-regulated learning (group e) fostered students' comprehension best. Thus, with appropriate support, writing can serve as a beneficial medium helping students to self-regulate their understanding of subject matter. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
