Teach Health Sciences Students How to Learn: Metacognition is the Key!
Health professions students arrive on campus with varying academic skills, approaches to learning, and motivation levels. As faculty, we often lament that our students are focused on achieving high grades and they do not exhibit critical thinking skills. This presentation will focus on the importance of helping students acquire simple, but effective, learning strategies based on cognitive science principles. We will engage in interactive reflection activities and experience strategies that significantly improve student success by transforming their mindsets about intelligence and attitudes about the meaning of learning.
Presenter: Saundra McGuire, Ph.D., Director Emerita, LSU Center for Academic Success, Retired Assistant Vice Chancellor, and Professor of Chemistry
