Based on recent findings about Self-Regulated Learning (SRL), we outline three educational interventions aimed at fostering students’ learning competence. Our particular focus is on the interaction between collaborative learning in Technology Enhanced Learning contexts and the development of SRL competencies. Two interventions carried out by our research team involved collaborative activities conducted both face-to-face and in web-based learning environments, aimed at promoting the SRL skills of first year university students. Based on the outcomes of these two projects, a further project for different departments was undertaken. This last intervention was designed to facilitate collaborative reflection on the components and processes of SRL through e-tivities and discussion forums. Our research suggests that collaboration in analyzing and working on the different competencies involved in self-regulated learning is an optimal means of enhancing the self-regulation competencies of university students.
