Brief Abstract

Connect authentically with learners by assessing learning behaviors and cataloguing their metacognition. Join an interactive session exploring how self-awareness and personalized learning can be used as approaches to meet the challenges you face. Discover how a common vocabulary describing learning can make a measurable difference in instruction and student support!

Proposal

Eleven years ago, Ken Bain of Montclair State University published his research emphasizing the importance of 1) connecting with students as learners; 2) building trust and understanding between instructor and student; and 3) teaching students how to learn the subject matter using self-awareness, metacognition, and personalized strategies.

Fourteen years prior to Bain’s research, U.S. and European instructors researched and developed an advanced learning system that operationalizes what Bain sought:

1. helping the learner and instructor identify personal learning behaviors using a learning inventory,

2. authoring a personal learning profile sharable with peers and instructors,

3. establishing and using a common language conveying internal learning operations,

4. developing a process for deconstructing assignments and course expectations, and

5. developing personalized strategies to complete course assignments or prepare for exams.

This session equips participants to connect with learners in a more authentic manner and help students personalize their learning—empowering them to reach the summit of their potential.

Participants will:

1) complete a web-based learning inventory,

2) develop a Personal Learning Profile,

3) discuss how to use the outcome of each to foster a dialogue between the instructor/tutor and student and enhance communication during team-based tasks, and

4) learn how to decode an instructor’s assignment and generate personalized learning strategies carefully directing them in completing the assignment.

This holistic advanced learning system assesses learning behaviors and catalogues one's metacognition and accomplishes two things simultaneously: 1) focuses students on the classroom instruction; and 2) feeds the student's need to be connected to some type of technology (phone, tablet, or laptop) while engaging in learning. This session engages participants in using this advanced learning system and its support technology to develop and practice the very things Ken Bain introduced to the higher education learning community ten years ago.
