It’s become very apparent that many present-day students are coming into the college classroom without the skills they need in order to be successful in higher education. Metacognition has been strongly linked with improved GPAs, college readiness, and retention; however, faculty are often unaware of how to purposefully instill and foster these abilities in students. This live seminar will provide specific strategies to build these necessary competencies.

WHAT ARE THE LEARNING GOALS?

Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify key characteristics of metacognition
  • Link metacognition to the process of formative assessment
  • Recognize and explain the benefits of implementing metacognitive activities into curriculum
  • Integrate effective metacognitive practices into existing curriculum
