Pacific Early Childhood Education Research Association – Hong Kong Chapter (PECERA-HK) is very pleased to organize an online public seminar on “Self-Regulation: Key to Success in Life and Learning”.
This interactive lecture is a discussion of the 7 important principles of self-regulation: on why self-regulation is foundational to lifelong functioning; why poor self-regulation could lead to adverse consequences; how self-regulation can be taught to manage both cognition and emotion; why “co-regulation” by parents and teachers is significant at every stage of a child’s development, and how parents and teachers may become models of self-regulation so that their children and students may demonstrate increasing self-efficacy along the educational journey for lifelong learning.
