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
