Metacognition: The Key to Equity and Excellence for All Students!
21st Century students come to college with widely varying academic skills and motivation levels. Most students expend very little energy attempting to learn and rely on memorizing information just before examinations. This interactive workshop will help attendees understand why many students expend very little energy on learning and have difficulty achieving student learning outcomes. Cognitive science research based methods that can be used to facilitate conceptual, transferable learning will be discussed. The session will present specific learning strategies that have resulted in significant increases in student effort and improvement in student learning in undergraduate, graduate, and professional school environments.
