Target Audience

This event is for educators interested in effective and meaningful reflection practices to apply to their classes, service learning experiences, experiential learning, and more.  

About

In these two workshops, participants will learn about and practice different approaches to reflection for learning, especially in contexts that are experiential or that focus on learning for civic responsibility and social justice.


Day One: Reflective Learning Basics (2 hours) 


This workshop will focus on developing reflective learning strategies that align with the goals of particular learning contexts. Participants in this workshop will design learning goals, practice linking reflection practices to those goals, and experiment with reflection basics like observation, synthesis, critical analysis, and linking reflection to social-emotional awareness.

Participants will leave the workshop with reflection strategies that they can immediately apply in their contexts.


Day Two: Facilitation Strategies for Reflective Learning (2 hours) 


Field trips, service-learning experiences, and immersive learning trips often involve group reflection and circle work. Building on Reflective Learning Basics, this workshop will introduce participants to strategies for building and facilitating reflective learning experiences, rather than “tacking reflection on” to an experience. Participants will practice leading group reflection processes with one another.
