Özet

The purpose of this paper is threefold. Firstly, self-regulated learning is described from the social cognitive perspective and why self-regulated learning should be targeted in schools is discussed. Secondly, problem-based learning is proposed to facilitate self-regulated learning. Literature on the effects of problem-based learning on students' self-regulated learning in K-12 science classes is reviewed. An empirical base for how particular aspects of problem-based learning can improve students' self-regulated learning is provided. Finally, based on the reviewed literature, limitations in the specified research area are addressed and some recommendations for further research are offered.
