Do your students know how and what they are learning – and not learning – in your courses? Do they take ownership of their education? Metacognitive reflections, in which students pause to think about their individual and collective objectives and progress/struggles, can enhance the self-awareness and cognitive processes of students at all levels and encourage them to assume more responsibility and control of their learning. This can also lead to more productive, civil communication between teachers and students. In this session, Eve Kornfeld (History) will introduce the theory and practice of metacognition for university students across disciplines and levels.
