LEADERSHIP EDUCATION IN A TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT: THE RELATION BETWEEN SELF-REGULATED LEARNING AND SELF-LEADERSHIP
Our increasingly complex and dynamic environment demands comprehensive self-regulatory skills from university graduates. Self-regulation summarizes the ability to set goals, monitor progress, and adopt behavior purposefully. In an increasingly technology-enhanced learning environment, IS research has already explored approaches to promote self-regulation in students' learning activities. However, it is unclear whether this self-regulated learning (SRL) prepares students for leadership roles. To address this research gap, we gather survey data and apply multiple regression analysis to examine how SRL strategy usage is linked to self-leadership (SL) strategy usage. Our results suggest that behavioral SL strategies are related to the usage of SRL strategies, e.g., the SL strategy “self-rewarding” to the SRL strategy “repeating”. In contrast, SL strategies such as “mental imagery” are unrelated to SRL. Based on these findings, we suggest a target-oriented use of digital technologies to foster SL and reveal the need to promote SL strategies like “mental imagery” separately.
