Closing the Metacognitive Equity Gap: Research Shows Us How
Dr. Saundra McGuire, Professor (Emerita) of Chemistry and Director (Emerita) of the Center for Academic Success, Louisiana State University, and author of the best-selling books Teach Students How to Learn and Teach Yourself How to Learn
Dr. McGuire will share research-based learning strategies that have proven effective for increasing STEM student success. She will also discuss research on promoting student learning through metacognitive approaches, with a particular lens on improving equity in the classroom. Her work blends cognitive science and learning theory, and these evidence-based approaches will be broadly applicable to all STEM instructors.

Dr. Niral Shah, Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences and Human Development, University of Washington
Dr. Shah will discuss his research on race and racism in STEM education, and how instructors can incorporate anti-racist practices in the classroom to improve student outcomes.
