The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning will host a workshop titled "Deepening Student Learning: A Workshop on Critical Reflection" from 8 a.m. to noon Tuesday, May 7, in the ballroom of St. Francis Xavier College Church.
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, Patti Clayton, Ph.D., 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. The workshop is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students.
For more information or to register, visit the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning website. A continental breakfast will be served.
This event is sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs, the Division of Student Development and the Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning.
