Location: Union 340

Students need to develop the intellectual habits of managing their own learning, adapting their approaches to current situations, and assessing their own learning and performance. These skills do not come naturally, yet are often assumed, and usually fall outside of content areas. As a result, instructors over or underestimate their students. How can you build metacognitive skills into your course design? This workshop assumes advance reading of Chapter 7 of How Learning Works (2010). The chapter will be mailed to registrants two weeks in advance. Participants who register by May 15th for a total of four chapter sessions (including any of the four spring 2013 sessions), will receive a free copy of the book by June 1st. Notify Cheryl Jones, CIPD Program Associate, of your commitment and she will order your copy. Come with lunch and ready for conversation. Contact Connie Schroeder for further information at or 229-5764.
