You Too Can.... Improve With Metacognition!
Concurrent Session 8
Metacognition refers to an intentional focusing of attention on the development of a process. It encourages awareness of one’s current state of accomplishment, along with the situational influences and strategy choices that are currently, or have previously, influenced accomplishment of that process. Through metacognition, one should become better able to accurately judge one’s progress and select strategies that will lead to success. There are two primary goals of this website. First, we want to highlight and focus on how metacognition plays a key role in the process of learning academic content and developing skills in higher education. Second, we want to highlight and focus on how metacognition may play a key role in the process of teaching (i.e., metacognitive instruction). We consider this site to be a collaborative resource for both students and teachers, and we welcome additional contributions from both!
