Ace your Self-Study app

CLI Fellowship of Martine Baars
Martine Baars

The Community for Learning & Innovation (CLI) gives lecturers from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) the opportunity to apply for a fellowship. With this fellowship, they research educational innovation, or carry out an educational project.
On this page you can read more about Martine Baars' (ESSB) CLI Fellowship about the development of an app to help students ace their self-study.

Being able to regulate one’s own learning is important for academic success but was also found to be very difficult for students. In this project the effects of a mobile application (i.e., Study app) to support self-regulated learning processes of freshmen will be investigated. Martine will implement the app in the first course of the psychology curriculum and measure students’ motivation, satisfaction, SRL skills, and learning outcomes.
