Today’s question: (I need) help “getting more students engaged in their education!” – 10:54:11 12/17/2011
The Solution: As part of their March 2012 Learning Event, the WITS Instructional Design Technologists shared the cognitive processes associated with being a self-regulated learner and the learning strategies and technology to support those processes. During “Four Tools to Assist Students with Successfully Self-regulating their Learning,” the tools emphasized were ANGEL rubrics, Google Docs, ANGEL Actions and Posterous.
The WITS Faculty Focus for that month was Dr. Eric Carver, CETL Lead Faculty Associate and Health Information Management faculty. Dr. Carver shares tools he uses to support student self-regulation in his classroom.
