Cultivating Great Learners: Instilling Cognitive and Psychological Characteristics that Promote Students’ Success

Event date: Tuesday, September 27, 2011, from 12:15 PM to 1:15 PM
Location: CTE - UNH3030

Cultivating Great Learners: Instilling Cognitive and Psychological Characteristics that Promote Students’ Success (Flyer)

Presented by CTE Faculty Associate Vandana Thadani, Ph.D.

Students who shine: They love learning, they work hard, they persist even in the face of challenges. And whatever they know about the subject when they enter your classrooms, these students always find a way to learn more and grow. What’s going on in these students’ heads? What cognitive and psychological variables put them above the rest? And how can we help many more of our students develop these qualities? In the first of a series of presentations and discussions in the “Student Engagement and Reflective Learning” program, we’ll explore the research on cognitive and psychological variables that help students excel.

Lunch will be included, please RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu or (310)338-5866

Keywords: Student Engagement, Academic Motivation, Reflection, Metacognition
