You’re Invited! 2018 Science of Learning Symposium: Metacognition (Thurs., Oct. 11, Columbia University)
We invite you to the inaugural Science of Learning Symposium, Metacognition: From Research to Classroom, on Thursday, October 11. This year’s Symposium brings together Columbia faculty, staff, graduate students, and experts in the science of learning to share the research on the role of metacognition in learning, and to translate it into strategies that maximize student learning.
The Symposium kicks off at 9:00 AM in the Low Library Rotunda with moderated presentations by Janet Metcalfe, Professor of Psychology at Columbia University, Robert A. Bjork, Distinguished Research Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Sian Beilock, President of Barnard College. Discussion will follow, led by Elizabeth Ligon Bjork, Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles and Dylan Wiliam, Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at University College London. Later in the day, the CTL will host two workshops by Elizabeth Ligon Bjork and Dylan Wiliam in Butler Library for faculty, staff, and graduate students to explore evidence-based metacognitive strategies that can be implemented in the classroom.
