Weaving Metacognition into an Introductory Biology Course

Christelle Sabatier

I developed a series of online activities using Google docs and forms to promote student metacognitive development in an introductory biology course. The activities encourage general reflection on learning strategies both in and out of the classroom and link these reflections to in class assessments. This ongoing project provides a scalable set of tools for instructors wishing to implement metacognition in their courses but don’t have much time in their curriculum to do so.
