Self-Regulated Learning: Active Learning on the Inside

Most students have serious misconceptions about learning, especially about the amount of effort and focus it requires and your role in their learning process. One way to dispel these misconceptions and help students understand what learning actually involves is to teach them how to become self-regulated learners. Self-regulated learning is the metacognitive skill and practice of strategically planning, monitoring, and evaluating one's learning—a key success habit that few students know about. During this keynote, you will hear about some of the research showing that instructors can improve their students’ exam performance and overall achievement by inducing students to practice self-regulated learning. After it, you will be able to explain what self-regulated learning is, how it goes beyond metacognition, where it came from, and how students benefit from practicing it.
