Metacognition Lab at Miles College Takes Peer Mentoring to a Higher Level
Chekwa, Emmanuel; Dorius, Tina
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v12 n1 p65-69 Spr 2016
Albert Einstein famously said, "I never teach my students. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn." At the Miles College Metacognition Lab, we follow a similar philosophy. In the Metacognition Lab, we teach our students to think about how they are thinking. We have created a system of student interactions that monitors and assesses student progress and concurrently teaches our students how to monitor and assess their own progress. To this end, we have four main focuses: 1) Creating meaningful relationships of trust based on honest communication 2) Emphasizing the importance of short term and long term goals 3) Teaching students the Study Cycle and how to do Intense Study Sessions and 3) Creating Action Plans that outline simple steps for the students to follow on their own.
