Metacognition white-boarding

Have you ever wanted to help your students become more effective/skillful learners?  Whether it is a minute question or a more in-depth exercise, metacognitive strategies can help transform student learning.  These strategies can help students go from “but I studied for so long” to passing an exam, while improving their reasoning skills and becoming more confident in their ability to solve problems.  This interactive workshop will go beyond the basics of “what is” metacognition and will provide you with concrete strategies you can embed in your courses.
