Examining Reiterative Reflection in the Library Instruction Classroom: A Qualitative View

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Does reflective pedagogy work? How do we encourage students to, as Kathleen Blake Yancey says, "witness their own learning?" Reflective pedagogy has been successfully used to facilitate transfer learning in semester long writing courses, but can it be an effective pedagogy in the Library Instruction classroom? Does reflection allow us to assess student learning/teach students to assess their own learning? In this session, we will discuss preliminary findings of our qualitative study that explores the impact of reflective pedagogy on student learning in the library instruction classroom and engage conference participants in discussion about moving forward with this work.

Participants will:
  • Learn what reflective pedagogy is in order to engage in the conversation.
  • Reflect on their own learning in order to better understand its application.
  • Learn how to implement reflective learning both individually and as a group in order to use it authentic assessment.
