Numerous studies have suggested that SSA is a fundamental learning skill that supports self-regulated learning and lifelong learning. Its benefits to students’ academic achievement have also been well documented in the literature. Yet there are major issues related to SSA that need to be better understood if it is to be implemented as a major support for student learning.

This seminar aims to identify the gaps related to conceptual and practical issues in SSA literature and shares a series of studies conducted in Hong Kong to address those gaps. The studies cover a variety of topics including the conceptualisation and measurement of SSA processes, the characteristics of SSA practices, the predictors of SSA intentions and practices, and the interventions for promoting SSA.
