Self-regulation of learning by students has been found to be strongly associated with academic attainment. This self-regulation can be aided by using assessment rubrics, formative assessment, encouraging students to “think out loud”, or by explicitly teaching students problem-solving and study skills strategies. This one-day conference will host presentations from teachers, faculty developers and researchers, addressing a range of strategies currently being developed to help university students learn how to learn. Presentations will include: examples of university-level study skills programmes using both on-site and on-line approaches, strategies to develop students’ ability to think within their disciplines, and examples of teacher development workshops, courses and programmes aimed at student self-regulation.
