Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


Dr. Claire Ellen Weinstein pioneered theory and research on learning strategies and built an international reputation as a leader in developing approaches to foster strategic and self-regulated learning, especially for college students who are underprepared or at risk. Weinstein’s Model of Strategic Learning and the many educational applications she derived from her model, such as the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) and her college-level learning-to-learn course, have helped to shape theory, research, and practice in education and psychology. This session commemorates Dr. Weinstein’s life and legacy and provides opportunities at the end for audience members to contribute.
