CEE Graduate Student Workshop: Tapping Into Student Metacognition and Establishing a Reflective Practice

July 13, 10:00am to 11:50am

Fundamental to the learning process is the ability to problem solve and assess course material. Yet, strategies for fostering critical engagement are often left up to students to discover on their own. In this workshop, participants will discuss the importance of metacognition, or thinking about how one processes information, in student learning. They will also assess the relevance of incorporating reflective practice into student activities and instructional practice.
