CAS Reflections

Being reflective is one attribute of the IB learner profile: “We thoughtfully consider the world and our own ideas and experience. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses in order to support our learning and personal development.”

The overarching intention of reflection in CAS includes the opportunity for students to:

  • deepen learning
  • consider relevance of experience
  • explore personal and group values
  • recognize the application of knowledge, skills, and attributes
  • identify strengths and areas for development
  • gain a greater understanding of self and others
  • place experience in a larger context
  • generate relevant ideas and questions
  • consider improvements in individual and collective choices and actions
  • transfer prior learning to new situations
  • generate and receive constructive feedback
  • develop the ongoing habit of thoughtful, reflective practice.
