Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning | PLE's- what role for HE? | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog

 

"One of the best gifts teachers can give students are the experiences that open their eyes to themselves as learners. Most students don’t think much about how they learn. Mine used to struggle to write a paragraph describing the study approaches they planned to use in my communication courses. However, to be fair, I’m not sure I had a lot of insights about my learning when I was a student. Did you?
As fall courses start to wind down, it’s an apt time for reflection. Here are some pithy (I hope) prompts that might motivate students to consider their beliefs about learning."


Via Dennis T OConnor
Claire Brooks's insight:

good prompts for developing reflective practice about self as learner. Might work in with some aspects of Learning Analytics too.

Teachers and students require time to reflect. We should be creating classrooms which reflect a phenomenological experiencing of teaching and learning.

"The task force was charged with updating the information literacy competency standards for higher education “so that they reflect the current thinking on such things as the creation and dissemination of knowledge, the changing global higher education and learning environment, the shift from information literacy to information fluency, and the expanding definition of information literacy to include multiple literacies, e.g., transliteracy, media literacy, digital literacy, etc.”'

Claire Brooks's insight:

 

Personalisation has its basis in and appeals to marketing and consumer theories, with consumer technologies increasingly personalised. However if learning is to become personalised one cannot ask what technologies are to be used but perhaps must ask what the optimal instruction for a particular learner is. Personalised learning may provide the context for assessing the capabilities of e-learning systems, supported by new pedagogies and modes of assessment for understanding learner development.
