Reimagining Self-Regulated Learning: Helping Students Develop Metacognitive Awareness in Online and Hybrid Learning Environments
Metacognition is broadly defined as awareness and control of one’s learning and is increasingly recognized as an important component of the learning process. For many institutions looking to create and support active learning environments with the aid of technology, the question becomes, in what ways can learning technologies like the learning management system (LMS) be leveraged to promote self-regulation and metacognitive skill development in students? What effect do these interventions have on student learning behaviors and academic outcomes? And how can positive interventions like these be positioned across an institution? To explore this topic in deeper detail, please join us on Thursday, October 29 as we explore these questions and more with Drs. Crystal Fulton, James Matthews, and Emma O’Neill from the University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland.
