A Framework for Preparing Students to Design Their Own Learning Strategies
Moore, David Richard
College Quarterly, v7 n4 Fall 2004
Students often do not have a clear idea of what is expected of them when they study. They have an "ambiguity of purpose" problem, that is to say, they are not sure of the learning goals and the means to achieve them. A large amount of responsibility for analyzing content and selecting learning strategies falls upon the student and their skills in this area are in short supply. To formally assist students in developing these skills, this paper applies Merrill's Component Display Theory (Merrill, 1983), an instructional material classification methodology, to analyzing content. Instructional classifications can guide students study behavior just as they guide an instructional designer's design process. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
