The School-Based Research team at the Research Laboratory for Digital Learning is excited to offer a talk on “Defining and Redefining Non-Cognitive Competencies.”
Tuesday, September 27, 2016
11:15am – 12:45pm
24 Hayes Hall
Non-cognitive competencies, including students’ dispositional traits, motivational attributes, and self-regulation strategy use, have recently been cited as important factors for success in higher education and the workplace. The talk, led by the lab’s School-Based Research Lead, Dr. Vanessa Vongkulluksn, will review extant literatures on non-cognitive competencies and their influence on academic achievement, higher education readiness, as well as content-specific education. Contemporary issues related to the use and measurement of non-cognitive constructs will also be addressed. The ensuing discussion will cover future directions in theoretical and empirical research in this area.
