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.
