Upcoming Session

Teaching and Assessment of Metacognition

Wednesday, February 15, 2023
2pm Eastern (11am Pacific | 12pm Mountain | 1pm Central)

Description: 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.

About the Presenter: Erin McCoy is the Coordinator of Library Services at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Massachusetts. Throughout the years, Erin has enjoyed combining her love of teaching and her natural curiosity to help students find what they need at any point in the research cycle that brings them to the library. She recently finished a Master’s degree from UMASS Boston in Critical and Creative Thinking, which allowed her to explore the intersections of information literacy in a variety of practical applications.
