Session title

Metacognition and memory: how are they related and what does that mean for learning and teaching?

1.30 - 2.30pm

Workshop Overview

Daniel will be looking at what we know about how our memory works, what that means for knowledge retention and why knowledge is so important, even within an AI infused world. He will also be exploring what metacognition and self regulated learning are, myths surrounding them, the relationship between the two and memory and what our understanding of these different areas means for both teaching and learning.
