Abstract

Since our mission is the collaborative cultivation of a university-wide media culture, in this chapter the authors propose to look at the relation between Self-regulated learning (SRL) and Technology-Enhanced Learning Environments (TELE) from the point of view of a learning organization. The goal is to clarify how to embed TELE-technologies in educational institutions in a collaborative way that sustains and continuously improves the quality of teaching and learning at a university. Our solution is focused around the concept of “university-wide media culture”, a corporate culture for new media that we hope to develop by means of a collaborative instrument called the “Reference Course Model”. The authors begin by screening and summarizing what they consider to be relevant aspects of components of the SRL theory (models, learning strategy, prompting) and continue by introducing the concepts of media culture, media literacy and their relation to TELE and SRL; based on this they then present their idea of what they call a “Reference Course Model”, explaining its theoretical foundation and developing its conceptual features. Finally, they conclude by showing how they have implemented this model in their university and reflect on the experiences collected to-date.
