Educational research has shown that students who reflect upon how they learn and are actively engaged in multiple ways to apply, analyze, evaluate, and create retain and can use information more effectively. Exam wrappers, memory builders, and strategy plans are activities that encourage students to reflect upon how they learn to build effective study skills. In this workshop, we will explore several activities that you could introduce in class to increase self-directed learning.
At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
-Understand elements of developing self-directed learning
-Compare and contrast learning strategy activities
-Select strategies to apply in your course
