Evidenced-based Strategies for Implementing Critical Learner Reflection

At one point or another in our learning journeys, we have probably all been asked to reflect on our learning experiences. Although educators across disciplines have long recognized reflection’s importance and applicability across a wide variety of educational settings, it nonetheless remains a challenging concept for educators to firmly grasp in practice. Many instructors who try to integrate learner reflection into their teaching face the following question or similar conundrum: How do I foster learners’ ability to engage in reflection that goes beyond their simple description of what I or they did in class? This webinar helps you break the cycle of non-transformative reflection that educators often encounter. You’ll become familiar with (a) what learner reflection entails, (b) why learner reflection is critically important according to research, and (c) how to implement reflection in ways that help learners reap its benefits and become autonomous learners.
