Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning | Purposeful Pedagogy | 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."

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

As I interview teachers, the role of reflection is very important to their pedagogic practices. It takes on many different modes: writing, driving to and from work, listening purposefully, etc. It is not a one-size-fits-all.
