Mackenzie Brooks
Washington and Lee University, United States of America

Take a Hammer to your Hard Drive: Facilitating Metacognition among Humanities Graduate Students
Kate Joranson, Nicole Scalissi, Alison Langmead, Kiana Jones, Aaron Brenner

Join this discussion with librarians, faculty, and graduate students on developing shared metacognitive practices, exploring collective and individual relationships to technology.
