Workshop concludes at 4:00
Many of us have heard students say things like, “I didn’t learn anything in that course. I had to teach myself everything.” While this is frustrating to hear, there are ways we can encourage students take more ownership over their own learning and motivational processes, and use more effective learning strategies. Building upon metacognition, self-regulated learning is “the monitoring and managing of one’s cognitive processes as well as the awareness of and control over one’s emotions, motivations, behavior, and environment as related to learning."1 In short, learning how to learn by being self-aware, setting goals, thinking about one’s own thinking, and making the proper adjustments when necessary. You will leave this workshop with evidence-based teaching strategies that strengthen students' self-regulated learning skills, and progress them toward being independent and successful lifelong learners.
