FYI -- Linda Nilson is the endnote speaker at the Annual CRLA Conference.  Her talk is titled:  Self-Regulated Learning:  Way Beyond Study Skills.  You can read the abstract here:  http://www.crla.net/conference/2015/speakers.php



The book Creating Self-Regulated Learners is the One Book, One Conference pick this year.  If you attend the conference you get a discount from the publisher.  Details and a review are here:  http://www.crla.net/conference/2015/OneBook.php



I agree with Lee Ann and Saundra that the book is good.  We use the concepts when working individually with students.  Anyone that helps students learn how to learn can benefit from reading the book.



The conference is in Portland, November 5-8.  Save the date!  I hope to see you there!

One of my colleagues and I used Linda Nilson's book (Creating Self-Regulated Learners) as the basis for our FYS class last fall.  The quick reference assignments chart in the front of the book is immensely helpful in designing and modifying class assignments to teach students how to be more metacognitive.  We used many of the "wrappers" as described in the book to help our students heighten their conscious  awareness of the learning process.  By the end of the semester, we were very pleased to discover that students were able to demonstrate their understanding of self-regulated learning.  I highly recommend this book to professors in any content area who want to help students become better learners.
