“A cue-utilization model for improving students’ and teachers’ judgment accuracy”
On Tuesday October 3, from 09:30 – 11:00, Prof. Dr. Keith Thiede (Boise State University, Idaho, USA) will give a keynote titled “A cue-utilization model for improving students’ and teachers’ judgment accuracy”. This keynote is sponsored by EARLI in the context of an Advanced Study Colloquium on Teachers’ and Students’ Metacognition (coordinating organizer: Janneke van de Pol, Utrecht University).

Keith Thiede completed a PhD in educational psychology (University of Washington, 1994) and is currently appointed as associate dean and professor in the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Foundational Studies at Boise State University. He published several research articles and book chapters on metacognitive monitoring and the important role that monitoring and regulation play in learning. Over the past 20 years, his research addressed how self-regulated learning is influenced by the goals students set for the task, and how monitoring accuracy affects study decisions and learning. Much of his research involved finding ways to improve students’ monitoring of their learning. In his recent work, Thiede investigates how monitoring accuracy is affected by classroom instruction. Much as students must accurately monitor their learning to study effectively and improve learning, teachers must accurately monitor their students’ learning to adjust instruction and help students learn more effectively. In this keynote, he will present his work on students’ and teachers’ judgment accuracy, and he will apply the cue-utilization model to explain the basis and implications for improvement of monitoring judgments.

The keynote takes place in the Langeveld building at the De Uithof campus of Utrecht University. Interested participants are invited to attend this keynote; please register before September 30st 2017 by writing an email to earli.asc2017@gmail.com.
