Using a module to teach new MMAC employees about diabetes would have an aspect of self regulated learning. The module would require them to complete it on their own and in order to do that they would need to use SRL principals to complete it. They would be able to use the learning objectives for the module to develop their own goals for the module. They will use self reflection in that they will evaluate if they were able to meet the learning objectives.
In the study by Whipp & Chiareli, it talks about face to face interactions before and after. This is something that would be incorporated in my module. I would meet with them to explain the process and the objectives of the module. I would then meet with them after completion to provide time for them to ask any questions that they may have from the module.
I feel that many people starting a new job have the qualities of SRL because they are “excited” about the new opportunity and are motivated. I ask my peers… do you agree or have any thoughts about this as well?
