The implementation of information and communication technology in academic settings has changed the perception of the roles played by teachers and students, their relationships, and the use of teaching practices. Hence, self-regulated learning becomes a relevant concept in the way students learn in virtual environments, particularly the teachers’ role and influence in virtual education settings. The present study aimed to identify the teaching practices that promote self-regulated learning in virtual learning. To do so the study used qualitative research through semi-structured interviews and the analysis of online forums of three distance university teachers. Through the interpretative analysis, it was found that the participants’ central role is to promote motivation in their learners and promote aspects that help to generate and maintain it, like the self-efficacy. Moreover, an additional finding was the empathy that allows teachers to become closer to their students, identify their needs, and promote their motivation and interest in learning.
