S9: Metacognition in Chemistry Education

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Metacognition -- sometimes described as "thinking about one's own thinking" -- broadly encompasses various facets of metacognitive monitoring (knowledge of what one knows) and metacognitive control (regulation of one's own thinking processes), and has been linked to topics ranging from studying choices to problem-solving strategies to conceptual change. In this symposium, we hope to bring together discussions and research on the role of metacognition within teaching and learning chemistry that have previously appeared scattered among disparate symposia. To that end, this symposium invites submissions on metacognition in chemistry education, including, but not limited to: assessing student metacognition in various contexts and by various methods, relationships between metacognition and performance, interactions between metacognition and other student characteristics, and interventions or curricula designed to foster improved student metacognition in chemistry.

Presider: Seth Anthony, Oregon Institute of Technology
