Hello! My name is Jason Jones and I am a graduate student in the Geoscience Learning Process Research Group at North Carolina State University lead by David McConnell. Our group researches the most affective teaching and learning practices for geoscience education at a number of levels; from the student’s cognitive perspective to course design to faculty professional development. Personally, I am currently studying the effect of empirical measures of students’ metacognitive processes on their level of self-regulated learning and achievement within the context of introductory geoscience courses at the undergraduate level.
