Some of our recent work, identifying CS-specific self-regulated learning strategies has been accepted for publication at ITiCSE’2014. In this work, we analyse reflections by our first year cohort on their learning difficulties and successes, identifying both the use of general and domain-specific strategies. If we are able to identify strategies that are specific to our domain that are used successfully by students, then we will be better placed to guide students in developing these skills.
