Event Description

Defined loosely as thinking about our own thinking, metacognition has always been essential to learning. It refers to knowledge about our own thoughts and cognitive processes, as well as the regulation required to direct learning, studying, and related behaviors. One might argue that nowhere is metacognition more essential than in graduate school, where so much of our learning and scholarship is self-directed. In addition, at no time might it seem more important to effectively self-regulate and improve independent learning than during preparation for exams.! In this workshop, we’ll explore several key study strategies to support you as a graduate test-taker.
