Developing Self-Direction

Do you teach students who are underachieving–students who seem to be focused on completing assignments but not mastering skills or students who see poor performance as a personal failure rather than an opportunity to find new solutions or supports? If you answered “yes,” this course is for you. What such students may be lacking is self-direction, the ability to set goals, plan for learning, direct independent learning, and self-assess their knowledge. The good news is that, with the right instructional approaches, you can turn that situation around. Research indicates that gains in self-direction come with higher academic achievement, deeper learning, and a foundation for future entrepreneurship. In this course you will have access to background information and strategies that will help you to support the development of self-direction, a key 21st Century and entrepreneurial-readiness skill.
