A Mirror to the Mind: Metacognitive Practices to Help Students Learn How They Learn

May 14, 8:30am - 3:30pm
May 15, 8:45am - 12:00pm
- Moulton Hall Ballroom -

Commonly described as “thinking about thinking,” metacognition is the basis for “self-regulated learning,” reflections, and other activities that help students plan, monitor, and evaluate their own learning. By teaching students to learn how they learn, we're engendering a continuously valuable and renewable skill that will help them to succeed in your class, their studies, and throughout their lives!
