Reflection is a cornerstone of learning and a critical component of effective learning environments. It is a means of building engagement, of supporting students to take control of their current and future learning, and simply of helping students become better learners. In this presentation, two LMU faculty members, Prof. Adam Fingerhut (Psychology) and Prof. Jeremy McCallum (Chemistry & Biochemistry) will describe their very different approaches to encouraging student reflection in their courses. This event continues the series in the Student Engagement and Reflective Learning Program. Through presentation and informal discussion, we will explore the wide variety ways in which we can support student reflection—ranging from informal, in-class discussions through reflection scaffolded through technology.
Lunch will be included, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or (310) 338-5866.
