Metacognition Approaches to Enhance Student Learning in Mechanical Engineering Classroom

  title={Metacognition Approaches to Enhance Student Learning in Mechanical Engineering Classroom},
  author={Quamrul Mazumder},
 Abstract— It is conceivable that over the next decade, all students will have access to some form of internet-based device while attending classes. The work presented in this paper investigated how web-based metacognition tools influence student capacity to self-assess their understanding (learning), student regulation of their learning (confidence level), class dynamics (reaction) and instructor methods. Student self- assessment associated with specific lecture slides were collected and… 

Active learning in computer science education using meta-cognition (abstract only)

Meta-cognition techniques are incorporated in four computer science courses over two semesters at University of Michigan, Flint, including CS1, and also graduate level courses to infer conclusions about how correlated are the scores obtained to the confidence levels reported and are students more satisfied with a course that incorporates meta-cognitive techniques.
