Today’s students enter college with widely varying academic skills, interests, and motivation levels. Faculty lament that students are focused on grades, but do not want to spend time actively engaged in the learning process. Most students think that memorizing information is tantamount to learning the material, and spend considerably less time studying than is commensurate with their grade expectations. This webinar on effective metacognitive learning strategies is designed to help faculty, learning center professionals, and student affairs personnel develop techniques to help students become independent, self-directed learners. A discussion of the characteristics of today’s students will help participants understand why many students lack effective learning strategies when they enroll in college, and how simple it is to teach them strategies for successful learning. Reflection and think-pair-share activities will introduce participants to cognitive science research-based methods that can be used to improve teaching and learning. The webinar will provide a variety of strategies that have proven successful in helping students experience meaningful, transferable learning.
