Promotion of Self-Regulated Learning

Part of the Innovations in Science Education and Technology book series (ISET, volume 3)


This chapter is about making students better at academic survival. Think about what you are proposing to undertake. You are now contemplating putting much of your learning material “on-line.” In your current setting, you have some control. To some degree, you can make students attend class. (This varies from setting to setting, of course.) You can engage them in activities. Over the WWW, they have much more freedom. They may be logged onto a machine, but you won’t be there to see what they’re actually doing. My sense is that students who are poor at self-regulation easily can be “slaughtered” in WWW-based courses. You can’t place your materials on the WWW if your candidate students are not self-regulating and hope for success, can you?
