Event Details:

Every educator wonders from time to time (or maybe all the time!) what his or her students are thinking. But what about how they're thinking?

Recent neuroscience findings shed new light on the external and internal factors that affect acquiring, processing, and learning new knowledge. In this online seminar, Leslie Myers and Melissa Terlicki, two leading authorities on metacognition, will review these findings and offer strategies for incorporating them into your teaching.

This seminar is based on the highest-rated session from the 2013 Teaching Professor Conference. You'll come away with a deeper, richer understanding of what makes students "tick" and a valuable set of tools for reaching them more effectively than ever before.
