Day 2: Reflection

Faculty workshop participants from across the disciplines will explore ways to teach students reflection/analysis of their own learning. Participants will construct several reflective/analytic prompts that they can then take with them to use in their course(s). Strategies for evaluating student responses to the prompt will be discussed.
By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and
third by experience, which is the bitterest.

  • Introductions & Workshop Goals
