Developing Self-Regulated Learners
a workshop for parents and teachers
Self-regulation is the process of taking control of and evaluating one's own learning behaviour. Self-regulated learners have a greater awareness of their academic strengths and challenges and a tool kit of strategies they use to tackle the day-to-day challenges of academic tasks. Students who have developed self-regulation skills are more open to taking on challenging tasks, practice their learning, develop a deep understanding of subject matter, and believe that effort will give rise to academic success (Perry et al, 2006).
This workshop will help teachers and parents better understand academic self-regulation, how to teach self-regulation, and highlight strategies that help shift responsibility for learning from the adult to the student.
This workshop will address:
- How do effective students learn on their own
- What techniques effective students use to read, write, study and prepare for examinations
- What are the principals of self-regulated learning
- How to teach self-regulation
- How we can help students with self-regulating problems
- How self-regulation skills are useful for all students, not just those experiencing academic difficulties
