Prof. Järvenoja’s research interest is in the field of self-regulated learning, particularly motivation and emotion and their regulation in individual and social levels, socially shared regulation processes in collaborative learning, technology enhanced learning and supporting regulation of learning with technological tools. She has published in international refereed journals and is actively involved in international research networks, such as European Association for Learning and Instruction (EARLI). Previously, Järvenoja was leading, for example, a Finnish Academy funded research project that studied elementary school students’ emotion regulation in collaborative learning situations (EmReg). Currently, she is continuing this line of research in a four-year long MoTor research project, which is also funded by Academy of Finland. In MoTor, that stand for "Not motivated - How regulation of learning builds up students' will to learn?", Järvenoja and her research group are investigating the complex reciprocal relationship between learners' regulation of learning and their learning motivation. Alongside with research focused projects, Järvenoja is PI in projects striving to implement the newest research-based knowledge on learning into a practice; i.e. in EU funded Erasmus+ project TUNED and in TunTuVa project aiming to support understanding of the role of emotion regulation in early childhood education funded by Finnish National Agency for Education.
