IC-bGer, Sandra Godwin, will be facilitating a reflection workshop on Jan 26th. If you are hoping to start (or improve) student reflection in your course this will be a great workshop to attend.
Jan 26 2015 – 12:00pm in the North Clarke Street House (202 N. Clark Street)
A contemplative teaching workshop titled “Reflection is Easy, Right?” will take place Jan. 26. This workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Sandra Godwin, Department of Government and Sociology.
Contemplative pedagogy aims to help students and faculty integrate reflection into their learning and teaching. In this one-hour workshop participants will practice reflection writing and will discuss ideas for reflection assignments and how to assess them. Dr. Sandra Godwin will lead the workshop that is designed to explore some of the thorny issues of reflection (e.g., grading personal writing, sharing teacher’s own reflections with students) as much as it is to provide examples and assessment of reflection activities.
