The ability to manage one’s emotions and behaviours is called Self-regulation, or Academic resilience, in the context of learning. It enables better focus, less distraction and an ability to bounce back from knockbacks.
MetaX suggests an effect size of 0.56 (Ref: Professor John Hattie).
The Osiris Self-Regulation Programme teaches the specific practical strategies essential to building this vital skill. They can be applied in three contexts, those struggling with basics, the quiet majority, and high capability learners facing potential failure.
This three-term programme explores the Self-Regulation Models most suited to your context, providing lead staff with a complete toolkit so they know which strategy to apply in which circumstance.
Academic challenge and progression present hurdles for all learners. These can evoke an emotional reaction and accompanying self-talk that distract and close the brain to learning.
In many students (50% Osiris Learning survey 2021) just the fear of getting things wrong can block an “open to learning” response. Their need is not to fill knowledge gaps but build self-regulation strategies. This course is an antidote to anxiety, stress response and behavioural distractions.
Many staff already apply self-regulation strategies in their teaching. This programme is about fine tuning, deepening professional knowledge around the application and developing a coherent approach across the school so learners receive consistent and appropriate support.
The benefits of academic resilience are demonstrated in a number of studies which highlight the relationship between academic resilience and positive academic achievement.
Self-regulation is also seen as a significant predictor of coping at university. All students, at some point, will experience poor performance, challenge or pressure. Students who are more able to cope and adapt to these ‘challenge points’ are more likely to experience positive academic achievement
A positive approach to opportunity, feedback, and challenge.
An improved ability to overcome the setbacks and challenges that are part of everyday academic life.
An increased capacity to face down acute/chronic adversity, usually seen as a major threat to educational development.
