Metacognition: The Key to Accelerated Success for Graduate Students and Their Students
When: February 17, 2017 at 2:30pm – 4:00pm
Where: MBI Auditorium
Graduate and professional school students often face challenges adjusting to a new set of demands – acing coursework, preparing for cumulative examinations, assuming teaching duties, and producing research results. This session will present metacognitive learning strategies and time management tools that graduate students can teach their students and that they themselves can use to “step up their game” so that their success in graduate school will equal or exceed their success in undergraduate school.
Speaker Information: Dr. Saundra Yancy McGuire, Director Emerita of the Center for Academic Success and Retired Assistant Vice Chancellor and Professor of Chemistry at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA has presented on metacognition and student learning at over 100 events, both nationally and internationally.
