Online Keynote by Dr. Saundra McGuire
Dr. Saundra McGuire facilitated an interactive session for faculty and staff to explore metacognitive strategies that will help increase students' understanding of and investment in their learning. This synchronous online interactive learning opportunity will help you enhance or be more intentional about metacognitive strategies you already utilize in your classes and offer low-stakes ways of embedding new metacognitive strategies for helping students learn.
Wednesday, August 25, Small Group Conversations
Academic Resource Team staff facilitated one-hour small group conversations that engaged the ideas from the keynote lecture. These conversations focused on cooperative learning as opposed to being presentational in nature. Participants were asked to bring questions, experiences, and ideas. The groups were no larger than eight faculty and staff and took place in person or via zoom.

Metacognitive Strategy Reflective Assessment Conversations
In these 90-minute Zoom conversations with Dr. Saundra McGuire, small groups of faculty and instructional staff will have the opportunity to reflect together on what they have learned about what is working and what isn't working with the metacognive strategies you have integrated into your classes during Fall semester. What can we learn from each other's successes and failures? You will have an opportunity to sign up for one of these in the RSVP and, if there are remaining open spots, after the Provost's Retreat on August 23rd.
