Metacognition: Strategies for Helping Students Learn How to Learn (Early March 2018)

Session Description

As experts in our particular fields, we have learned how to be critical learners.  That is, we have learned ways to plan, monitor, evaluate, and reflect on new contexts, ideas, practices, and research as part of daily lives. These reflective, metacognitive skills are invaluable to us, and they are largely invisible to (and therefore not practiced by) our students as novice learners.  This session will focus on ways of incorporating reflective, metacognitive practices into your courses so that students, too, become critical learners, a foundation for becoming critical thinkers
