Strategies for Meaningful Feedback on Student Reflection Winter 2023 (IN PERSON)

Experiential education can be a transformative learning experience for many students. However, “just thinking or having an experience do not necessarily result in learning, but rather critical thinking and reflection support and facilitate the learning process.” (Whalen & Paez, 2019, p.56) Critical reflection can help students “integrate new understanding into [their] experiences in order to better choices or actions in the future as well to enhance [their] overall effectiveness.” (Rogers, 2001, p.41)

Students engaged in experiential learning use critical reflective activities as spaces to work through their learning. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies for providing meaningful feedback on student reflection and consider how this feedback can create space for authentic (sometimes ungraded) formative assessment.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Create space for meaningful feedback for students engaged in experiential education experiences
  • Design meaningful feedback in different modalities
  • Assess the effectiveness of using or discarding rubrics for assessing student reflection

This session will take place on Wednesday, March 1st from 10-11.30am on campus (Keele) in room DB 1014 - Victor Phillip Dahdaleh (formerly TEL) Building.

Workshops activities will include individual reflection, small group discussions, and large group dialogue. If you require any accommodations to assist you in participating in this session, please let us know in the registration form below.
