RONČEVIĆ ZUBKOVIĆ, BARBARA - She teaches courses in the field of educational and school psychology. Her areas of scientific interest include self-regulated learning and the use of information and communication technologies in education. She is currently involved in two projects funded by the University of Rijeka: “Personal and Contextual Determinants of Learning and Teaching of Different Age Groups” (leader: Prof. Svjetlana Kolić-Vehovec, PhD, Department of Psychology, FHSS) and “Knowledge-Based System to Support Inclusive Education of Students with Dyslexia” (leader: Sanja Čandrlić, PhD., Department of Informatics, UNIRI).
Within the first project, she explores various determinants of learning success at different educational levels, within the framework of self-regulated learning. She focuses primarily on the effects of motivational and metacognitive factors on student learning success. She also participates in research examining the effects of the contextual factors on learning (e.g. individual and collaborative learning, use of ICT in learning and teaching). Within the second project, she collaborates with experts in various fields (information and communication sciences, educational and rehabilitation science, speech therapy) in the development of a knowledge-based computer system to support education of students with dyslexia.
