Get Students to Focus on Learning Instead of Grades:
Metacognition is the Key!
 

Friday, October 19, 2018
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Moore 125

Students come to college with widely varying academic skills and approaches to learning, but their professors often lament that the students are mainly motivated to achieve high grades in their courses and are unwilling to spend the time and effort required to learn the material. In this session, faculty will engage in interactive reflection activities that will allow them to encourage their students to adopt effective learning strategies based on cognitive science principles that will transform student attitudes about the meaning of learning.
