Abstract

The importance of metacognition in building a strong engineering team is discussed. A metacognitive approach is expected to encourage students to become conscious of their team skills. Performance has been classified into cognitive and affective domains. The cognitive domain includes higher order thought processes such as logic and reasoning and is the primary target of engineering curricula whereas Affective domain includes attitudes, values, and self concept.
