High performing students have created, consciously or unconsciously, strategies for success. Beyond the requisite skills and information of a given discipline, they are aware of how they are learning and thinking, and they are self-regulating about how they approach any process. This higher awareness and self-regulating behavior is called metacognition—and it can be taught! Join for this workshop on helping students (and you) develop metacognitive skills.
