Metacognition, simply, is “thinking about one’s own thinking” (Cooper & Sandi-Urena 2009). Research shows that students who engage in metacognitive exercises perform better on exams, written assignments, and class discussions. Most importantly, thinking metacognitively is important for students to gain independence and agency as thinkers. How then can we foster students’ ability to be metacognitive and to reflect on how and why they learn? After participating in this workshop, you will be able to design activities and assignments that enhance students’ metacognitive skills and integrate these activities into your courses.
