LSIS Research Development Fellowship projects: A learner centred approach to developing independent learning skills

Principal focus of the project

The focus was on identifying the views of students regarding self-regulated learning strategies in the context of revision, and to explore ways in which teachers could change the way they raise awareness in students of the skills required for revision and independent learning.

Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

Students were confused by what was expected of them outside of class and agreed that the language of learning should be agreed at the start of the year. Students expressed the importance of peers as support networks for learning outside of the classroom and therefore should be encouraged by teachers.
