GPTK801 - Teaching Students how to Learn: Strategies for Developing Metacognition in the Classroom

Have you ever wondered how to teach underprepared students? Many students arrive at university without knowing what to expect or how to handle the level of preparedness that is expected of them. They mostly struggle with universities’ demands of higher-order thinking skills such as analyzing, reasoning, and evaluation.

This workshop aims at providing instructors with a road map and strategies that are easy to implement in their courses to help students learn more deeply and meaningfully, achieve more success in their studies, and become self-regulated learners.
