Students who practice metacognition can learn more and perform better than students who do not. In this talk, which is open to graduate students and postdocs, faculty, and staff, 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 the following day.
The talk, which is part of the Innovations in Undergraduate Education Speaker Series, is sponsored by the Department of Biology, The Teaching Center, and the Center for Integrative Research on Cognition, Learning, and Education (CIRCLE).
