From Students to Learners: Developing Self-Regulated Learning
Journal of Education for Business
Prior researchers have shown that self-regulated learning (SRL) is associated with success in school and is viewed as a key to success in a career. In this article, the authors provide a process for developing SRL. At a private midwestern university, students were exposed to the basic elements of SRL throughout two semesters of accounting principles. Students and the instructor collaborated in selecting personal learning goals for each student. Frequent and extensive monitoring of learning activities and progress toward goals, along with instructor feedback, promoted self-regulated learning. Instructor observations and student feedback provide evidence of the benefits of exposing students to SRL.
