Deepening Student Learning: A Workshop on Critical Reflection
Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., College Church Ballroom
Critical reflection is essential for deep learning and is a hallmark of Jesuit education. However, students often need to be taught how to engage in meaningful reflection, and even when faculty and staff create opportunities for reflection, the results are not always satisfying. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Patti Clayton will share a research-grounded model for critical reflection and engage participants in a hands-on workshop to enhance understanding of the features of critical reflection. Participants will leave with practical strategies for deepening students' critical reflection, both in and out of class. This workshop is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students.
After this workshop, participants should be able to:
- Describe the model of critical reflection presented;
- Explain how this model can enhance students' critical reflection skills;
- Apply the model in their own work with students;
- Work collaboratively with others across campus to better understand and create opportunities for more integrated critical reflection across curricular and co-curricular learning experiences
