Metacognition is thinking about thinking. What are some of the benefits of metacognition and why is it important for doctoral learners to understand their metacognitive processes

Part 3

As a doctoral learner it is important that I understand the metacognitive process because the dissertation process requires metacognitive skills. Using these skills include developing a research question, reading related articles and learning from them, collecting and analyzing research data through the use of the scientific method, and finally, using the information and data to form conclusions. In addition, it is important to apply the research findings the real world as a practitioner scholar in my field. This entire process requires the use of critical thinking skills that must be obtained through practice (lecture notes 2014)
