|Outline of Final Research Achievements
The overall aim of this project was to better understand and promote students’ spontaneous use of effective learning strategies. To achieve this aim, the project had four main objectives. During the four years of the project, we have been able to achieve all of these objectives. Hence, we have been able to (1) elucidate key mechanisms that underlie student learning strategy use, (2) clarify how students’ perceptions and communication can play a crucial role in determining the learning strategies they use, (3) learn from intercultural observations and comparisons of different methods for the promotion of student learning strategy use, and (4) propose and evaluate concrete teaching methods for the promotion of learning strategy use in real educational contexts. In total we have produced 63 outputs including 16 peer-reviewed journal papers. We also received an international award for one of the research papers we published.
