SoL: Metacognition & Feedback

SoL: Metacognition & Feedback

Once students learn to amass knowledge effectively, they are ready to become self-directed learners. In this program, educators learn to develop their students’ awareness of how their learning occurs and their ability to monitor and manage their learning behaviors. This is the foundation for learning independently, effectively, and efficiently. This two-module course is designed to help educators develop their students’ metacognition through practical strategies and application guides that foster metacognitive awareness and deliberate practice.

As research suggests, effective feedback, formative assessments, and peer-based learning are among the most effective ways a student can learn information deeply and demonstrate transfer. Alongside application guides and technology tools, educators will master the science behind these concepts and how to apply them with fidelity in the classroom.

Program Modules

This program consists of ~15 hours of self-led asynchronous e-learning, which are complemented with live synchronous office hours to support learners. Learners maintain a flexible pace for their cohort to be in sync with each other to promote meaningful peer discussion and collaboration and to benefit from scheduled office hours and webinars.

08. Foster Metacognitive Awareness

Teaching metacognitive reflection is an effective strategy to accelerate student achievement. Learn how to provide students with practical strategies that foster metacognitive awareness and create the foundation for learning independently, effectively and efficiently.

09. Provide Effective Feedback

Research suggests effective feedback, formative assessments and peer-based learning are among the most effective ways a student can learn information. Learn how to integrate and apply these concepts into your classroom.
