Roger Azevedo presented his innovative research on self-regulated learning and multimodal data in his LIfBi Lecture on July 18, 2023. His research focuses on measuring and promoting self-regulated learning with advanced learning technologies. The audience at the Wilhelmspost and online gained exciting insights into his research on serious games, intelligent tutoring systems, simulations, and immersive virtual learning environments. Roger Azevedo, who heads the Laboratory for the Study of Metacognition and Advanced Learning Technologies at the University of Central Florida in Orlando (USA), outlined in particular the opportunities and challenges of developing advanced learning technologies.
Innovative research methods
To understand the complex interactions between humans and intelligent learning systems, Roger Azevedo uses multimodal methods to measure cognitive, metacognitive, emotional, motivational, and social processes and their effects on learning, performance, and transfer. In the laboratory, classroom, and on site (e.g., medical simulators), he collects multi-channel data to develop models of human-computer interaction and designs intelligent learning and training systems to identify, capture, model, and enhance the self-regulatory processes of learners and teachers.
One-week stay at LIfBi
Roger Azevedo spent a week at LIfBi and exchanged ideas with LIfBi researchers about innovative research and opportunities for international and interdisciplinary collaboration in various discussion groups.
