Marzano's High Yield Instructional Strategies. Strategies for Effective Lesson Planning. Stiliana Milkova Center for Research on Learning and Teaching A lesson plan is the instructor’s road map of what students need to learn and how it will be done effectively during the class time. Before you plan your lesson, you will first need to identify the learning objectives for the class meeting. Then, you can design appropriate learning activities and develop strategies to obtain feedback on student learning.

However, once they learn the metacognitive strategies that efficient learners use, students with learning disabilities can apply them in many situations.” (Lerner and Kline, 2006, p. 184) Description. Metacognitive Study Strategies for College Students. Introduction Learning is something that everyone is expected to be able to do; but very rarely does anyone sit us down and tell us how to learn.

Metacognitive Study Strategies for College Students

We may learn component skills that allow us to perform a task; for example, learning specific steps to perform a task or the parts of a paragraph or essay. These are steps toward producing a product; not actually learning and mastering knowledge. Perhaps even more importantly; how do we decide what we need to learn and understand when and how we have learned it? How often, when faced with a new idea or a problem, do you sit down and think "What do I already know about this? " This course has been designed with the new college student or at-risk college student in mind, with the goal of providing skills and strategies necessary for success both in college and on the job.

Can Students Learn to Learn? Kolb’s Learning Cycle – Live Language Learning. All teachers, regardless of the discipline, must be considerate of the various learning styles of students.

Kolb’s Learning Cycle – Live Language Learning

You learn this in Teaching 101: Teaching is not a one size fits all scenario. This goes a long way in explaining why our vocation has so many challenges. In today’s teaching seminar at the CAVILAM center in Vichy, France we spent a lot of time discussing the merits of Kolb’s learning cycle and how it can help all teachers remain attentive to the various learning styles of their students. We are each wired differently and have unique ways of engaging in the learning process. There is no ONE right way to learn for everyone. First, a teacher must help a student complete the full cycle of learning. The second task, which is associated with the first, is that teachers need to vary their activities so that no one style of learning is favored over the others.

Introduction Reflective practice is important to the development of lecturers as professionals as it enables us to learn from our experiences of teaching and facilitating student learning. Developing reflective practice means developing ways of reviewing our own teaching so that it becomes a routine and a process by which we might continuously develop. Kolb developed a theory of experiential learning that can give us a useful model by which to develop our practice. Concrete Experience (doing / having an experience) Reflective Observation (reviewing / reflecting on the experience) The 'Reflective Observation' element stems from your analysis and judgements of events and the discussion about the learning and teaching that you engage in with your mentor, colleagues and fellow PGCLTHE participants.

Part of the difficulty stems from changes in approaches to education – shifts from objective-based, to competency-based, to outcomes-based, etc. education have taken place over the years with various champions of each espousing the benefits of using a different point of view. The Outcomes Pyramid shown below presents a pictorial clarification of the hierarchical relationships among several different kinds of goals, objectives, and outcomes that appear in assessment literature.

The 'pyramid' image is chosen to convey the fact that increasing complexity and level of specificity are encountered as one moves downward. The pyramid structure also reinforces the notion that learning flows from the mission of the institution down to the units of instruction. Outcomes Pyramid Definitions.

The majority of all college faculty still teach their classes in the traditional lecture mode. Learning Outcomes.

Bloom's Taxonomy was created in 1956 under the leadership of educational psychologist Dr Benjamin Bloom in order to promote higher forms of thinking in education, such as analyzing and evaluating concepts, processes, procedures, and principles, rather than just remembering facts (rote learning).

Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning Domains: The Cognitive Domain

It is most often used when designing educational, training, and learning processes. The Three Domains of Learning The committee identified three domains of educational activities or learning (Bloom, et al. 1956): Cognitive: mental skills (knowledge) Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (attitude or self) Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (skills)
