Registration Now Available for Metacognition Events

Saundra McGuire

Members of the EKU community can now register for the fall metacognition events. Metacognition is a process for thinking about the ways that we approach teaching and learning (or thinking about thinking). It helps us understand how students plan and learn best and then how classes can be designed to facilitate optimal learning experiences. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to register for the fall metacognition events:
