Fostering Independence: Helping Students Become More Effective Self-Directed Learners

With Sarah Lynn


Friday, February 24, 2017

6 pm – 9 pm

Prince George’s Community College

$15 members, $25 for nonmembers


In this ​​practice-oriented workshop, participants will learn classroom activities and routines to develop ​students’ ​essential “learning-to-learn” skills.   Workshop participants will explore ways to get lower level students to recognize themselves as agents in their ​own ​learning and develop the methods, skills, and practices they need to ​become more independent learners.  The classroom activities include: student contracts, discussion prompts, self-testing, reflections and recaps, problem solving, learning logs, checklists, gallery walks, and routines for student turn-and-talk and peer learning.
