Self-Paced: Engaging Learners in Reflection

One of the most important practices for learners–inside or outside of the classroom–is reflection. Through reflection, learners have the opportunity to make meaning of their experiences, make connections across experiences, and identify their strengths, weaknesses, and motivations. The process of authoring a reflection can improve the learner’s critical thinking, inquiry and analysis, comfort with ambiguity, and open-mindedness. However, learners need scaffolding and feedback in order to get the most out of the reflection-authoring process. After the learner reflects, educators have an opportunity to deepen the experience through discussion and feedback on the reflections. This self-paced module focuses on designing reflective learning activities.
