The Importance of Promoting Self-regulating Activities in Task-Based Learning Involving Video Curriculum

Tristan Currie
Abstract—This paper highlights how Non-Instructional Class Time (occurring either before the lesson begins or after it ends), can play an important role in encouraging student engagement in self-regulated learning, using a case study of adult learners studying the Pragmatics of English, as part of a video-curriculum in Hong Kong as an example. Mixed methods data analysis reveals how self-regulating activities work to integrate class-time, homework, and assessment into a feedback loop, offering constant stimulus to overcome learning disruptions. The paper concludes that Self-regulated learning (successfully encouraged during NICT) is effective at safeguarding course continuity and stimulating learning activity using video curriculum materials with adult learners.

Index Terms—Adult learners, NICT (non-instructional class time), self-regulated learning, video-based curriculum.
