EDUC 6735 - Helping Students Become Self-Directed Learners (Accelerating)


(3 sem. cr.) As the classroom changes, so does the role of a teacher. Teachers may find themselves acting more as coaches and facilitators as their students become more active in their own learning. In this course, teaching professionals will explore how to foster and encourage self-directedness in their students and create a learning environment that encourages collaboration and creativity. Teaching professionals learn how to help their students manage their own learning and inspire them to develop the skills they need to thrive. Teaching professionals learn how to:

  • Identify the characteristics of self­-directedness in one’s self and one’s students.
  • Help students refine their thinking beyond the first “right” answer.
  • Examine various ways to provide feedback that will help students produce high-quality work.
