Metacognition - what is it and how it can be used to enhance learning

Metacognition refers to a student's ability to be aware of what they are thinking about and choosing helpful thought processes.

Metacognition refers to a person’s ability to be aware of what they are thinking about and choosing helpful thought process. Research from the Sutton Trust Education Endowment Foundation suggests that metacognition is one of the most effective and cost efficient ways to help students make gains in their learning; yet the majority of teachers are not yet clear exactly how this can be applied in classrooms to improve the outcomes for students.

The aim of this is to raise awareness of the benefits of using metacognitive approaches and enable you to make confident decisions that will help your students to become more aware of their thinking about learning - so that they are better able to apply different strategies to overcome difficulties and improve their independent learning skills.

This course is delivered over two afternoons spread over two weeks giving delegates the opportunity to practise ideas between sessions and reflect on learning in the second session. This follows known adult learning models that help to embed learning.
