With this session we kick off the series Research methods in Engineering Education.

Patric Wallin will present highlights of the work published in the European Journal of Engineering Education “The reflective diary as a method for the formative assessment of self-regulated learning” by Wallin and Adawi. From reflective diaries and formative assessment practice to the use of thematic analysis to explore aspects of self-regulation, we expect the audience to engage in the discussions and find take-home messages related to the topic and the research methods discussed.
