Thursday, October 21, 2021 9:30am to 10:45am

Add to calendar

In this Community of Practice, faculty come together to share their knowledge and expertise on metacognition in the classroom. Metacognitive skill development has been shown to improve student course performance (including grades, attendance, and memory/retention), facilitate independent/self-regulated learning and research, and prepare students for life after graduation. Learn from each other and build your capabilities in a relaxed learning environment with faculty from around campus. By understanding how we think, we can understand the goals of the learning process and figure out the best strategies for student learning, ultimately ensuring student success. In these sessions, learn how to implement more metacognitive teaching strategies in your own classes, become a metacognitive student yourself, and get to know other CU Denver faculty members. 

Please join us to discuss metacognition, the many reasons you might consider including or expanding metacognitive instruction in your classes, and practical approaches and tips for doing so.

Instructors of all kinds, from any discipline, are welcome. All sessions are held virtually.
