CIDER session: Community of Inquiry Webinar Series, April 1, 11:00 am mountain time.

We invite you to the April CIDER session of our special ten-part Community of Inquiry Webinar Series. This free, online session will feature D. Randy Garrison and Zehra Akyol.

Title: The Development of a Shared Metacognition Construct and Survey Instrument for Communities of Inquiry

This session presents the second stage of a research project to develop a metacognition construct and instrument for the purpose of understanding and assessing the structure and dynamics of metacognition in a collaborative learning environment. The genesis of the shared metacognitive construct using the Community of Inquiry theoretical framework will also be described. The results of this study confirmed the shared metacognition dimensions of self and co-regulation. The researchers will lead a discussion on the practical implications of this work.

When: Wednesday, April 1, 2015 – 11am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)
