In the evolving landscape of higher education, the role of collaborative STEM learning has become increasingly vital. This method equips students with the skills necessary to tackle complex, real-world problems through interdisciplinary teamwork and innovative approaches. The success of this learning approach largely depends on the effective use of regulated learning processes, including self-regulated learning (SRL), co-regulated learning (CoRL), and socially shared regulated learning (SsRL). These processes enable students to manage cognitive and socio-emotional aspects of their learning effectively, fostering deep engagement and robust group dynamics.

Usual formative assessment (FA) practices, crucial for supporting students’ regulated learning processes, often fall short in providing personalised and timely feedback, particularly in online settings. This limitation curtails their potential to fully facilitate the emergent and continuous nature of SRL, CoRL, and SsRL. The introduction of Generative AI (GenAI) represents a significant paradigm shift, revolutionising FA by enhancing its ability to offer automated, immediate, personalised feedback.

 This seminar will focus on Dr. Serkan Ucan’s latest research exploring how GenAI can be integrated into FA processes to bolster and enhance SRL, CoRL, and SsRL during online collaborative STEM activities among university students. It will outline two primary research objectives: first, examining how GenAI tools can support and optimise FA processes within the context of online collaborative STEM learning; and secondly, evaluating how GenAI-integrated FA can enhance various aspects of regulated learning processes.
