In her work, Hilde Van Keer focuses on three main research themes, which are often intertwined in studies. A first theme focuses on innovative teaching methods in education, with an emphasis on peer learning (e.g., peer and student tutoring, collaborative learning), including both effect and process-oriented studies into the underlying dynamics and interactions during collaboration. A second theme focuses on the different components of self-regulated learning. In this respect, both the issue of measuring self-regulated learning as its promotion in educational contexts are dealt with. The third theme centers on the study of reading and writing (instruction) in compulsory education.
