Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session for 80 Participants (First-Come, First-In). 
Developing self-regulated post-secondary learners is our ultimate goal as educators. A hallmark of a self-regulated, self-directed learner is someone who can engage in thinking about thinking or learning about learning - in other words - having good metacognition. Students who know what strategies work for them, how to modify and make corrections and are aware of when they are not fully learning have a high degree of metacognition.

As educators, we can assist students in having good metacognition. We often can do this with short and easy-to-implement strategies, activities and engagement exercises.

This  session will share at least 10 metacognitive teaching strategies that can assist your students in being more successful in learning about learning - what works and what doesn't work. You'll try a few of these strategies and leave with a handout of a few more to try with your students.
