Yang Zhang | Metacognition Influence on the Design Knowledge Application

Tuesday, December 5, 2023 @ 13:00 CET – 14:00 CET –

In the closing 2023 Engage with Idea series Yang Zhang will discuss Metacognition Influence on the Design Knowledge Application. Yang’s research suggests that the students who scored highly on the Metacognition Awareness Inventory have ranked the reflective activities, which are make up the Tacit Knowledge category, higher than the either the Domain Specific or the Domain-General/Independent Knowledge category. He postulates although all three knowledge categories are important it is the reflective activities which enable the students to “reflect” on which of the specific knowledge category they should deploy at the specific design project’s juncture.
