Maastricht University, Universiteitssingel 40, 6200 MD, Maastricht - 

Research in metacognition and learning has provided fruitful insights that can be used in educational practice. 
With this symposium we aim at not only having experts share their latest research, but also providing a common space to discuss behavioral research and brain imaging findings, share knowledge, and think of applications as well as new perspectives.

The preliminary program consists of:
  • Keynotes by international experts, a.o. Keith Thiede and John Dunlosky.
  • Presentations about results from the NWO-PROO funded research project ‘Fostering Self-Monitoring and Self-Regulation’.
  • Poster presentations by selected participants.
  • Best PhD-student poster award.
Coffee and tea will be provided, as well as lunch and drinks.

Call for abstracts for poster presentations:
You are encouraged to present your work via a poster presentation and discuss it with leading experts in the field of metacognition, learning and memory. The deadline for abstract submission (max 200 words, excluding authors and affiliations) is August 15, 2012. If you are a PhD student, do not miss the opportunity to win the best poster award, which will be assigned by the international experts. You can send your abstract by email to Martine Baars, baars@fsw.eur.nl.

Admission is free, but registration is required by sending an email to Martine Baars, baars@fsw.eur.nl.
