Poster presented at the 2016 Lilly Conference on evidence-based teaching and learning in Traverse City, Michigan.
A major goal of higher education is to help students choose purposeful pathways through college as they acquire skills that support them in becoming self-regulated and lifelong learners. This poster describes the successful implementation of two practices that foster self-regulated learning, a before- and after-course case study used to assess course knowledge and goal setting, in a fully online teacher education course. In addition to describing the practices, the poster includes a thematic analysis of the data from open-ended student responses to the assignment. Participants are invited to discuss the implications of this work and its potential applications in their classrooms.
After interacting with others at this poster, you will be able to: (a) describe two practices for developing self-regulated learners, (b) identify lessons learned from the implementation of these practices in a fully online teacher education course, and (c) apply these practices to one of your own courses.
