This scientific research network will create a platform for experts investigating learning strategies and enhance the sharing of expertise on using and integrating different conceptual models, methodological approaches, and research findings. The platform is an important stepping stone to support theory building and initiatives for collaborative, multidisciplinary empirical research projects.
Three research questions are put central in this networking project and will be consecutively dealt with during intensive seminars with all the partners, as well as collaborative workshops and conferences:
- How can the social dimension be integrated in present models of learning strategies?
- How are learning strategies present in informal contexts of learning
- Can the reliability and validity of measurement of learning strategies in social and learning contexts be improved by using other techniques than self-report measures?
