Panelists will share their experiences and offer creative suggestions for integrating pop culture into the classroom.
Article Study: Self-Regulation of Learning
Thursday, February 21 3:00-5:00pm
Facilitated by Erin Rentschler, CTE
Taking control of their learning processes can be a challenge for newly independent undergraduate students. This article study will examine methods for facilitating self-regulation and self-motivation through reflection and mindful engagement. Participants in the article study will read and discuss selected articles from the New Directions for Teaching and Learning special issue on the topic. The issue is available online at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/tl.v2011.126/issuetoc. Participants will be sent a reading guide after registering for the event.
Graduate students are also invited to attend all CTE events. To see what other workshops will be held this semester, please view our calendar.
