When students can make learning plans, modify those plans and evaluate the success of their learning, they are becoming metacognitive learners who will find success whatever the subject matter. Self-regulated learning has seen positive results on improving student achievement.In this session, four VIU faculty members are on a mission to integrate a variety of self-regulated learning strategies into their classrooms to help students learn more about their learning. In a variety of disciplines, students and faculty have been experimenting with a collection of new teaching strategies to help students think about their thinking and learning (metacognition).Come hear what they’ve done, what feedback they are getting from students and what they are planning to do next.
