New learning models: helping students learn about learning
The goal of this project is to outline a framework, and create models, that can be used by teachers to guide learners through the process of designing their own learning. This work presents a theoretical framework and practical model of learning in which “learning to learn” is intentionally and explicitly part of the learning process and outcomes. The goal is rooted in a desire to have students to learn about learning by designing their own learning. As students become involved in the learning design, they also take ownership of, and direct their own, learning. While students are active participants in the learning design in this model, this paper suggests that the role of the teacher is much more than passive facilitator and is intensified by the dual role of teaching content and teaching learning.
