The Laboratory for the Study of Metacognition and Advanced Learning Technologies examines the role of cognitive, metacognitive, affective, and motivational self-regulatory processes during learning with computer-based learning environments. Our interdisciplinary research focuses on designing and testing the effectiveness of adaptive learning environments that are capable of detecting, tracking, modeling, and fostering complex learning processes in the biological and medical sciences.
Our research is funded by McGill University, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Canadian Foundation for Innovation, The Cedars Cancer Institute and the Institute of Education Sciences.
