Prompting and Supporting Student Reflective Writing

From site: Learning and Teaching Center

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017
9:00 am – 4:00 pm / Weitz 236

This event takes place each day from December 4th, 2017 to December 5th, 2017.

Over the past few years, scholarship in a variety of disciplines has reaffirmed the value of student reflection and metacognition. Furthermore, reflection is a critical part of several key initiatives underway at Carleton—including advising, ePortfolios, and student fellowships.  But what are the specific skills associated with reflection and how do we assist our students in acquiring those skills? How do we structure assignments and encourage student responses that prompt genuine reflection?

The Committee for Effective Learning with Technology and the Director of Writing Across the Curriculum, along with the Director of Advising, the Office of Student Fellowships, and the Perlman Center for Learning and Teaching invite you to a two-day workshop to explore ways to incorporate student reflection into activities and assignments at the course, program, and institutional level.

The workshop will be held Monday Dec. 4th-Tuesday Dec. 5th, with refreshments and lunch provided. The facilitators will present an overview of the scholarship on  student reflection and offer some examples of how reflection is currently being incorporated into campus and classroom activities at Carleton. Time will be available to work individually and in groups that share a specific goal or area of interest.

Eligible participants will earn a stipend of $240.
