Self-Directed Learning

We have all had the pleasure of knowing students who are firmly and enthusiastically in the driver’s seat during their learning journey. They are aware of what they know and what they don’t; they devise multiple strategies to acquire new knowledge and are able to assess the effectiveness of those strategies. They are known as self-directed learners.

What about the students who struggle with their role of being in the driver’s seat? How do we help them become more self-directed learners? We will discuss this in today's webinar!
