Weekly Reflection Podcast 6: Authentic Projects for Authentic Learning

by Gina Merys, Assistant Director for Faculty & Graduate Student Development, Reinert CTTL

This is the Weekly Reflection podcast from Saint Louis University’s Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning. Each week, we focus on a topic that fits with our theme for the 2012-2013 academic year, Engaging All Learners. Each reflection loosely follows the five-part Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (context, experience, reflection, action, and evaluation). The goal of this podcast is to provide an avenue into a space for thoughtful reflection on complex issues, rather than to provide answers to these issues.

The next reflection will be posted on Friday, October 12th. All reflections are archived for future use. For more information on this week’s topic, CTTL services, programs, or events please consult the website at http://slu.edu/cttl.

  1. I love this podcast series, Gina, and I especially love this week’s topic. I think it’s really important to encourage and create opportunities for students to create their own interpretations and understandings of course materials, especially during ‘review times.’ (Perhaps even more so then!) Thanks for providing this food for thought (and contemplative action).
