Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Apr 10, 2017
Suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Karl Wirth, Geology, will present, "Unskilled and Unaware of It.  Or Are They?"  In a 1999 study that become a cult classic, Kruger and Dunning argued that those who are most unskilled are also the least able to judge their own competence. Using data from paired, national science literacy and knowledge surveys, Wirth and an interdisciplinary team are the first to document evidence for the growth of self-assessment.  As an essential skill for lifelong learning, shouldn’t we devote more explicit attention to self-assessment in our curricula?  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
