This project aims to advance personalized learning by helping students to understand and regulate their own learning. The project is designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of self-directed lifelong learning. We developed two online modules - one on learning styles and the other on motivation. We have begun to test the effectiveness of the modules in two mechanical engineering classes - a sophomore manufacturing class and a junior design class. The modules themselves record data such as preferred learning style, MSLQ scores, pre and post knowledge on topics presented in the module, and module evaluations. In addition, we administered brain dominance and lifelong learning readiness instruments to control and intervention groups. We intend to monitor the changes in brain dominance and lifelong learning readiness over time for the control and intervention groups.
