Keynote Address - Metacognition Isn’t Just for Students

Metacognitive instructors are aware of their students’ engagement in learning and their learning achievements. They use this awareness to guide their pedagogical choices and interactions. At this time, however, the vast majority of research on metacognition has focused on students being metacognitive about their learning processes. This keynote will share some thoughts on why we should start to also focus our research and faculty development efforts on metacognitive instruction. It will include some results from a multi-institutional study on metacognitive instruction and some techniques by which instructors can become more metacognitive in their practice of teaching.
