First-year RIT students in the IMPRESS—or Integrating Metacognitive Practices and Research to Ensure Student Success—program learn metacognitive concepts that promote higher levels of learning. Here, Scott Franklin, director of CASTLE, talks with Paul Melnik, an electrical engineering major, Erica Neese, center, an engineering exploration student, and Emilyn Ngnyen, a biomedical sciences major, about their concept map. Franklin and Elizabeth Hane, not shown, co-teach the metacognition course.
