Abstract

Building on Dr. Saundra McGuire’s research and scholarship, paired with the ongoing conversation taking place at EKU, this poster examines the concept of metacognition, or thinking about thinking, in the Noel Studio. Metacognition refers to an understanding of how one learns and the development of effective learning strategies based on cognitive science principles. It influences improved academic performance, information retrieval, and preparation strategies.

This poster highlights the importance of metagcognition, the role it plays in academic growth, and how the Noel Studio uses strategies to challenge students and foster an active learning environment that encourages academic creativity through writing, communication, and technology. This case study employs a content analysis of Noel Studio materials, resources, and consultations to understand current themes, trends, and threads within the program. This study will distinguish how metacognitive practices are implemented during consultations and through resources that are available to students. In addition to examining current practices, this poster concludes with a set of recommendations for integrating metacognition into the Noel Studio and similar programs, including consultation strategies, consultant training, campuswide educational opportunities, and resources for the EKU community.
