In recent years, educators in Singapore regard Singapore Teaching Practice (STP) (launched in 2017) as a model of teaching and learning to guide and strengthen effective teaching. Supporting Self-directed Learning is one of the teaching areas proposed in STP. Students need to progress from being dependent on teachers to teach them, correct them and guide them in all their pursue of knowledge and skills, to be self-directed in their own learning. Being Self-directed learners, they will transit from being engaged in learning to being empowered to acquire new knowledge and skills independently, and to monitor and modify their learning path.
This workshop aims to help participants understand the characteristics of learners and learning, the Self-determination Theory (Deci & Ryan, 2008), Staged Self-directed Learning Model (Gerald Grow, 1996) and teachers’ role in developing students at the different stage of Self-directedness for their optimal learning. Examples of how teachers in Dunman High School, Singapore, promote self-directed learning in various academic subjects will be shared. The workshop also includes hands-on activities, discussion and reflection for participants to apply their learning into their own school context.
