Metacognition and Excellence in Teaching: Engaging Faculty and Students in the Learning Enterprise

Visiting Scholar:
Rochelle E. Tractenberg, PhD, MPH, PhD, PStat®
Georgetown University Medical Center Associate Professor, Neurology, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Biomathematics
Director, Collaborative for Research on Outcomes and -Metrics

This presentation will focus on metacognition, how it can be taught, practiced, reinforced, and grown across a curriculum to ensure all graduates develop life-long learning skill sets. Metacognition facilitates that most difficult of all teaching goals, to teach critical thinking. Together, these can become the real “take away” from higher education: life-long learning.

Professor Tractenberg has developed a curriculum building and evaluation tool, the Mastery Rubric, designed to engage both faculty and students in metacognitive development. Two Mastery Rubrics will be described to address concrete ways that excellence in teaching (anything) develops from a focus on the learning enterprise.
