CIA 605 Student-Directed Learning to Foster Motivation and Engagement

Description

Student-Directed Learning to Foster Motivation and Engagement digs deeper into concepts and theories introduced in prior courses. Now that the participants have common understanding of backward design (Wiggins & McTighe, 2006), effective assessment and how to meet the needs of all students, they are ready to hone in on ways to motivate their students to be more self-directed in their learning. 

This course focuses on helping students develop the skills necessary to thrive in and out of the classroom. Participants learn strategies for helping their students develop flexible knowledge, as well as problem-solving, cooperative learning and self-motivation skills. Special attention is given to ways to engage all students in opportunities to examine and evaluate their own work and learn from the work of their peers. 

COURSE OUTCOMES 

Participants will be able to: 

• Examine the latest research on student motivation and the classroom implications of this research 

• Implement instructional strategies that enable students to be more self-directed 

• Plan and incorporate consistent peer tutoring 

• Develop tools to involve students in evaluating their work
