What You Need to Know to Improve Student Learning

Explore techniques you can use to transform your students into champions of learning with How Can I Enhance Students’ Self-Regulated Learning Skills?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Linda B. Nilson, Ph.D

Thinking about how one thinks, or metacognition, is not a practice that comes readily to most new college and university students. But the sooner they develop their skill at self-monitoring their learning processes, the more successful and rewarding their educational experience will be.

Nilson, founding director of the Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation (OTEI) at Clemson University, literally wrote the book on self-regulated learning with her 2013 book, Creating Self-Regulated Learners: Strategies to Strengthen Students’ Self-Awareness and Learning Skills. A widely published author, she also wrote Teaching at Its Best: A Research-Based Resource for College Instructors, which is in its third edition (Jossey-Bass, 2010).

This presentation combines Nilson’s commitment to both student learning and research-based innovation in higher education. Multiple studies have shown the many ways self-regulated learning helps students:

  • Become better problem solvers
  • Enhance their listening skills
  • Retain more of what they read
  • Improve their exam scores
  • Avoid the pitfalls of overconfidence

You’ll learn the three stages of self-regulated learning plus specific and real-world-tested techniques you can use to encourage student self-monitoring, self-testing, and self-evaluation.
