Strategies for Helping

Students Become More Effective

Self-Regulated Learners

Bruce Harris

Director, Center for Teaching

and Learning Excellence


Introduction
Introduction

To be discussed in session.


Objectives of workshop
Objectives of Workshop

  • Recognize the importance of helping students go beyond basic study skills to help students become more effective self-regulated learners.

  • Recall five self-regulated learning strategies that we can teach our students.


Workshop agenda
Workshop Agenda

  • Background and Nature of Self-regulated Learning

  • Five Self-regulated Learning (SRL) Strategies


What is a self regulated learner
What is a Self-regulated Learner?

  • Students who are academically successful tend to be self-regulated.

  • The term self-regulated can be used to describe learning that is guided by executive processing (metacognition, conditional awareness, self-monitoring, etc.), cognitive processing (planning, declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge, etc.), and motivation (self-efficacy, goal orientation, attributional orientation, etc.) to learn.


What is a self regulated learner1
What is a Self-regulated Learner?

Self-regulated learners systematically direct their thoughts, feelings, and actions toward the attainment of their goals. They are cognizant of their academic strengths and weaknesses, they have a repertoire of strategies they appropriately apply to tackle the day-to-day challenges of academic tasks, and they are self-motivated.



Dual system model of cognition learning
Dual System Model of Cognition/Learning

Contemporary cognitive psychologists distinguish between two levels of cognition*:

Level1 (S1): Implicit cognition – largely intuitive, hard-wired, effortless; focused on typical, stable problems and skills.

Level2 (S2): Explicit cognition - conscious, effortful; focused on novel problems and skills.

* L1 processing is the default mode.

Five srl strategies
Five SRL Strategies

  • Conditional Awareness

  • Self-monitoring

  • Self-evaluation

  • Self-motivation

  • Self-explanation


Conditional awareness
Conditional Awareness

Defined a student’s ability to identify and execute appropriate learning strategies by recognizing contextual clues in a particular learning situation and context.


Conditional awareness1
Conditional Awareness

Instructional Strategies

  • Encourage students to set goals and develop a strategic plan based on contextual clues.

  • Sources of contextual clues:

    • Syllabus

    • Instructor’s lessons

    • Help seeking resources



Self monitoring
Self-monitoring

Defined as a student’s awareness of their comprehension or performance during or shortly after completing an academic task.


Self monitoring1
Self-monitoring

Instructional Strategies

  • Encourage students to review their work to determine whether it meets all the criteria specified by the instructor.

  • Encourage students to ask themselves:

    • “Have I identified all of the key points in this article?”

    • “I didn’t do as well as I thought I would on the last test. What learning strategies do I need to use to prepare for the next exam so I get an A on the exam?”

    • “My attention is beginning to drift. I need to stay focused for the next 45 minutes and then I will take a 10 break.”



Self evaluation
Self-evaluation

Defined as a student’s self-judgment on their performance by comparing it to their goal.


Self evaluation1
Self-evaluation

Instructional Strategies

  • Encourage students to review their strategic plan and determine what adjustments, if any, they need to make.

  • Encourage students to ask themselves:

    • “If I were to take a quiz on this topic right now, what grade would I expect?”

    • “Now that I have finished reviewing my notes, I need to ask myself how well am I understanding this topic.”

    • “Now that I know my score on this exam, what would I do differently for the next exam to do better?”

    • “To what degree am I following the plan I made for achieving my goal?



Self motivation
Self-motivation

Defined as a student’s awareness of his/her motivation level in regards to achieving his/her goal.


Self motivation1
Self-motivation

Instructional Strategies

  • Encourage students to assess their motivation level and to increase their motivation if necessary.

  • Encourage students to say to themselves:

    • “I feel like my motivation is low. I need to remind myself that I have been a successful student in the past and that I have overcome difficult challenges on other occasions.”

    • “As soon as I complete the self-test, I am going to reward myself.”

    • “Even though this article is taking much more time than I anticipated, I am not going to give up until I complete it.”



Self explanation
Self-explanation

Defined as a type of metacognitive activity wherein students attempt to analyze, clarify, amplify, draw inferences, interpret, and then explicate to themselves the subject matter of the course.


Self explanation1
Self-explanation

Instructional Strategies

  • Encourage students to attempt to generate self-explanations as they study.

  • Encourage students to ask themselves:

    • “How would I describe the situation, problem, concept, activity, etc.?”

    • “What possible implications or predictions can I draw from the information thus far?”

    • “How would I sum up, interpret, or explain the situation, problem, concept, activity, etc. thus far to someone else?



Review
Review

  • We can help our students to become more effective self-regulated learners in both F2F classes and online courses; however, it will not happen overnight.

  • Five self-regulated learning strategies we can teach our students:

    • Conditional Awareness

    • Self-monitoring

    • Self-evaluation

    • Self-motivation

    • Self-explanation
