E-Pedagogy, cultural systems, self-regulated learning, Vygotskian theory


This paper proposes that online teaching and learning be viewed and investigated as dynamic, evolving cultural systems [1-5]. Utilizing elements of socio-cultural [6,7], activity theory [8], and situated cognition [9] as a framework to illustrate this position, the author couches self-regulated and co-regulated learning as psychological functions used by teachers and learners to navigate e pedagogy. The author presents and discusses the implications of viewing regulation as a critical functional component of online teaching and learning cultural systems.
