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 both goals, and yet instructors often feel they lack time or expertise to teach their students metacognitive skills. This presentation offers a second opportunity to hear Lovett’s popular featured session from the 2008 ELI Annual Meeting.
