November Events on Integrating Metacognition

The Innovations in Undergraduate Education Speaker Series continues with an upcoming talk by Julie Stanton, PhD, (Assistant Professor of Cellular Biology; Director, Research Experience for Undergraduates, Undergraduate Biology Education Research, University of Georgia).

“Metacognition: How Undergraduates Self-Regulate to Learn Biology”
November 14, 2016,  4:00-5:00 pm
Rebstock Hall, Room 322

Students who practice metacognition can learn more and perform better than students who do not. In this talk, Julie Stanton will discuss metacognition, which is an awareness and control of thinking for the purpose of learning.

A reception in Rebstock Hall Room 309 will follow the event.

A workshop for Washington University STEM faculty will take place at noon the following day, Nov. 15, 2016. Registration for the Nov. 15 workshop is required.

These events, which are part of the Innovations in Undergraduate Education Speaker Series, are sponsored by the Department of Biology, The Teaching Center, and the Center for Integrative Research on Cognition, Learning, and Education (CIRCLE).
