Teach Students How to Learn: Metacognition Is the Key!

Today’s students come to college with widely varying academic skills, interests, and motivation levels. Faculty often lament that students are focused on achieving high grades, but do not want to spend time necessary to learn the material. Too many students think that memorizing information before an examination is tantamount to learning the material. Consequently, they spend considerably less time studying than what is commensurate with their grade expectations. This workshop introduces participants to cognitive science findings that can be used to improve teaching and learning. It also provides a variety of strategies useful in helping students experience meaningful and transferable learning. The webinar facilitator has taught chemistry and directed learning centers for over 40 years. Her current efforts are directed towards increasing students’ self-efficacy and academic success. She is particularly interested in helping faculty develop strategies for teaching underprepared students how to thrive at the college level.
