Supporting Students' Skillful Learning: Lessons Learned from a Faculty Development Workshop

Conference Paper

We describe the implementation of an on-campus workshop focused on supporting faculty as they develop metacognitive interventions for their educational contexts. This on-campus workshop at Duke University included engineering faculty as well as other faculty from other departments on campus and was developed and presented by members of the Skillful Learning Institute. Perspectives of the hosts and the presenters provide a more complete view of the purpose, context and logistics, and lessons learned for faculty workshops. Two prominent lessons for such workshops in general emerged related to making the ideas and information more easily assimilated: the need for more concrete and varied examples and the need for more time to process ideas and activities.
