Dr. Lynda Hutchinson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at King’s University College. Dr. Hutchinson’s program of research employs qualitative and quantitative research methods to examine factors (e.g., parental stress, teacher stress, child-parent conflict) associated with students’ development of and engagement in self-regulation and self-regulation of/for learning (SRL) in home and school contexts. Dr. Hutchinson’s former undergraduate thesis students have designed studies examining different targets of young children’s self-regulation in school (e.g., emotion regulation, socially responsible self-regulation), university students’ cognitive strategies and self-regulated learning, and mindfulness and self-regulation. Dr. Hutchinson teaches Introductory Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Educational Psychology, and the Honours Portfolio in Applied Psychology.
