|Profile||The focus of my research is Self-regulated learning. Self-regulated learning refers to the processes where learners personally activate and sustain cognitions, affects, and behaviors that are systematically oriented for their personal goals. By setting personal goals, learners create self-oriented feedback loops through which they can monitor their learning process. Self-regulated persons must be proactive in order to set goals. They also spontaneously engage in a self-regulatory cycle. Here, positive motivational beliefs are also essential. (Zimmerman & Shunk, 2011). I am especially interested in enhancing self-regulate learning strategies of the students in English classroom setting at a university level. As a practitioner
of classroom oriented research, I observe students' beliefs and attitudes in and outside of the classroom and do some experimental educational intervene to the students.
I am also interested in developing teaching materials for students to maximize input and output in English. Especially, Making use of authentic materials currently available, I have been publish more than three textbooks for ESL learners in Japan.
