Promoting Deep Learning through Metacognitive Activities

Workshop
Do you want your students to learn deeply in your classroom? Incorporating active learning strategies can help! Providing students the time and opportunity to develop metacognitive skills, such as reflecting on the learning process, helps them internalize the course content and skills and make their learning meaningful to themselves.

In this workshop, participants will learn about activities that promote the development of their students’ metacognitive skills and consider how the learning activities and experiences in their courses can be enhanced with simple reflective strategies.

Teachers' Lounge: Bridging the Expert/Novice Divide

This is the third of four sessions in a yearlong conversation on Metacognition: Cultivating Expert Learners to Maximize Equity in the Classroom. We encourage you to attend any or all sessions! This session will begin with a discussion of the divide between instructors and students as expert and novice learners, respectively. What assumptions do instructors often make about students’ learning processes? What are instructors’ blind spots when teaching novice learners? We will also discuss how to help students recognize their own cognitive blind spots as well as how to support them as they overcome barriers to new knowledge acquisition.

Discussion-into-Practice: Student Learning and Metacognition Faculty Reading Group (CUIMC)

What does the research tell us about how we learn, and what does this mean for our teaching practices? Each week faculty participants will dive into the literature and explore metacognition, the practice of examining how we learn, by discussing an article or book chapter. Together participants will consider how the research could inform their practices, reflect on their teaching, and share strategies. We will meet for three Wednesdays in February and March (February 27, March 13 & 27). It’s not necessary to attend every meeting. Lunch will be served.
