"Reframing Library Instruction: Applying Metacognitive Pedagogy to One" by Heather K. Beirne and Nicole Montgomery
"Metacognition, or the ability to think about one’s own thinking, is being adopted across higher education. Teaching and Learning Centers are offering campus wide workshops and initiatives, nationally known speakers are being brought in, and the language is even being incorporated into QEP plans. But can these same strategies that are being embraced by subject faculty be used to assist students in the research process? The session will discuss metacognition, what it is, some of its key strategies, and how it is being applied in higher education. The presenters will provide successful (and unsuccessful) examples of metacognitive pedagogy from their own library instruction. The presenters and participants will brainstorm together, using facilitation methods, about how metacognitive strategies can add value to library instruction, even helping to address the threshold concepts of the new ACRL Framework. Extended discussion and brainstorming will surround the different levels of collaboration with faculty, helping participants create a take away list of good, better and best concrete strategies for incorporating metacognitive pedagogy into their library instruction."

Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners | ALA Store
"Today's learners communicate, create, and share information using a range of information technologies such as social media, blogs, microblogs, wikis, mobile devices and apps, virtual worlds, and MOOCs. In Metaliteracy, respected information literacy experts Mackey and Jacobson present a comprehensive structure for information literacy theory that builds on decades of practice while recognizing the knowledge required for an expansive and interactive information environment. The concept of metaliteracy expands the scope of traditional information skills (determine, access, locate, understand, produce, and use information) to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments (collaborate, produce, and share) prevalent in today's world. Combining theory and case studies, the authors Show why media literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, and a host of other specific literacies are critical for informed citizens in the twenty-first century Offer a framework for engaging in today's information environments as active, selfreflective, and critical contributors to these collaborative spaces Connect metaliteracy to such topics as metadata, the Semantic Web, metacognition, open education, distance learning, and digital storytelling This cutting-edge approach to information literacy will help your students grasp an understanding of the critical thinking and reflection required to engage in technology spaces as savvy producers, collaborators, and sharers."

Dunning–Kruger effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it".[1] The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than in actuality; by contrast the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to a perverse result where less competent people will rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."
