Self-reflection is a powerful tool
Self-reflection helps students make important insights and improve performance and decision-making. Opportunities for self-reflection enable students to build awareness of their own learning skills and develop their abilities to analyze, think critically, communicate, and form connections between course content and real-world contexts.
The benefits of self-reflection
To set students up for success and help them to become aware of their reflective processes, providing students with opportunities to implement self-reflection as a daily practice will help students intentionally incorporate and use self-reflection to support their learning.
Self-reflection frameworks are tools
Self-reflection frameworks can help students develop their skills and learn how to meaningfully practice self-reflection in class and in their daily lives. As students develop this skill, they can approach self-reflection assignments and activities with improved confidence.
Evaluation tools help students gain valuable insights
Reflecting will look different for each student but assessing the quality of a student's self-reflection can provide beneficial information they can use to further develop this skill.
