Teaching and Assessment of Metacognition
Metacognition is often an invisible by-product of information literacy. The active reflection and evaluation of what is being learned directly impacts how information literacy skills are understood and applied. This presentation is the result of a research inquiry examining the relationship between metacognition and information literacy. We will discuss how the concept of metacognition intersects with information literacy, why making that connection explicit is essential to the library's mission, and how we as librarians can incorporate specific metacognitive strategies into the library classroom.
