Self-Regulation and Learning Strategies
Weinstein, Claire Ellen; Acee, Taylor W.; Jung, JaeHak
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n126 p45-53 Sum 2011
Learning strategies are a bit difficult to define since the nomenclatures used in cognitive educational psychology as well as in strategic and self-regulated learning have not yet been standardized across and within these fields of study. The self-regulated use of learning strategies helps enable students to take more responsibility for their own learning now and to become lifelong learners. The rapid development of advanced technology and the ever-expanding nature of workforce training will create ever-increasing demands for individuals to be lifelong learners. This chapter focuses on the critical roles learning strategies play in both academic readiness and in the self-regulation of learning that is needed for academic success in all categories of higher education.
