Strategic and self-regulated learning for the 21st century: The merging of skill, will and self-regulation
This chapter considers the importance of learner autonomy from an educational perspective wider than that of language learning, arguing for the need for all post-secondary students to be effective strategic and self-regulated learners if they are to succeed in their higher education studies. Discussing the issues in relation to the North American educational context, the chapter presents a model of strategic learning. After explaining how this model is constructed, it describes how it has provided the basis for an autonomous learning course at the University of Texas at Austin that aims to help students become more strategic and self-regulated learners, and how the ‘Learning and Study Strategies Inventory’ is then used to measure the effectiveness of students' management of the learning process.
