Understanding metacognitive strategies

Course description: 

This course looks at metacognitive teaching strategies that empower students to think. It is an insight into the theory and how it might be translated into day to day classroom practice. Students need the skills to understand their own thinking and the processes needed to make conclusions, create new ideas, and to reflect on themselves as learners. These are all skills needed to exist as a 21st century learner. Participants will explore ways of: Providing students with specific strategies to set goals, and monitor and evaluate their learning progress; Assisting students to identify and use strategies that support them to achieve learning goals; Allowing students to share ideas and thoughts in safe and risk free environments. Participants will have the opportunity to share their ideas and experiences during the session, with the focus being on working on their own specialities and enhancing their own practice. This course addresses the Victorian DET’s High Impact Teaching Strategies document, with a specific focus on Strategy 9: Metacognitive Strategies.
