Poster Session

Presenter(s):

Claire Yan – UBC Okanagan

Abstract:

Developing strong metacognitive skills not only improves students’ ability of learning discipline-specific knowledge, but also helps students develop intellectual habits that are crucial for life-long learning. This presentation describes a structured self-corrected assignment model used in engineering classes, with an intention to emphasize self-regulation and reflection.
