Climbing the Mountain: Supporting Student Reflection on Research

Wednesday, October 13, 2021
12:00 PM - 12:50 PM

 

Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511


Details

Ever wonder what students are truly learning through their research experience? Want to help guide them in that process of self-reflection? Undergraduate research is a well-established high-impact educational practice, but the impact of each experience is unique and personal for each individual student.

This workshop will focus on how to support student reflection at appropriate and meaningful points in their experience. It will introduce the three domains of learning and their application to student reflection at each stage of the Seven Ps of Research. Participants will practice reflection-in-action during the workshop and reflection-on-action after the workshop.

 

This workshop is an elective session for a certificate of completion in Integrative and Experiential Learning.


Register


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.

 

If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.

 

Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
