Metacognition and Monitoring
Web Seminar offered by OSU Libraries and TELR
Monday, May 5
Sullivant Library, Room 244A.
Hear more from Marsha Lovett, who gave the keynote address at the Spring OSU Academy of Teaching Mini Conference.
Lovett, Associate Research Professor and Associate Director Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence, Carnegie Mellon University, is featured speaker for this Educause Learning Initiative (ELI) web seminar: Metacognition and Monitoring: Understanding and Improving Students’ Skills for Learning.
As educators, Lovett says, we tend to focus on teaching students “content,” but we also want to help students develop as learners. Metacognition–thinking about one’s own thinking and reflecting on one’s own learning–is essential to achieving learning outcomes and to help students gain metacognitive skills.
An opportunity to discuss ways to integrate practices and strategies to improve student learning follows. The seminar is free. Read more at http://www.educause.edu/eliweb085
