Metacognitive Strategies for Learning and Teaching
Metacognition is a psychological term we apply to learning when we think of our students’ integration of knowledge and their taking control of their own learning. However, as course instructors and faculty we also use metacognitive strategies to organize our thoughts, keep track of constantly changing student needs, and juggle all of the elements of good teaching. This workshop will provide the opportunity for you to think about metacognition in your teaching. Dr. Paolo Matteucci of the Italian department at Dalhousie, will discuss some of the metacognitive strategies that he has researched and used in his practice.
