Help students make more thoughtful choices about how to study and learn (face-to-face and online):  Reasons, strategies, and resources

Presenters:  Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group, 

Douglas Eder, Emeritus, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

Saundra McGuire - Ret) Assistant Vice Chancellor  & Professor of Chemistry Director Emerita, Center for Academic Success Louisiana State University

Why should students understand more about their own options for studying and learning? How can they take more responsibility for their own learning?  How can faculty enable students to make more effective choices about their own learning?    

McGuire and Eder will describe how undergraduate students can improve their own learning rapidly and significantly in most courses (both face-to-face and online) by using  strategies such as:

A.  Teaching students to apply Bloom's Taxonomy and PARSA Study Cycle in specific courses - and more widely

B.  Assessing students'  engagement with course activities and content  

Other colleagues will share specific Low-Threshold Activities/Apps/Assessments (LTAs) and Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) that can be used to support such strategies by faculty and/or directly by students to improve student learning in a variety of courses.

In FridayLive! in March we revisited Chickering and Gamson's "Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education" and Ehrmann's article, "Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever." Metacognition was the most frequent suggestion for an extension of the original Seven Principles.  Teaching undergraduate students to use Bloom's Taxonomy to make better decisions about their own studying and learning is a strategy of metacognition. 

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
