Description / Descripción

Like an internal compass, metacognition is the center of our “executive functions.” It controls and manages our decisions, plans and thought processes. (Auto-regulation). While we may have the capacity to do so, not all humans metacogitate--metacognitive skills don’t come naturally. They can, however, be consciously cultivated. In this workshop we will:

  • examine some of the many dimensions of metacogntion and
  • explore and practice strategies for developing metacognitve capacities.
