I hope that your school term or university semester is going well. It has certainly been busy with it only being week 2 this week! I have been working on a great project that aims to improve students' and teachers' reflection and reflective thinking. We are planning on creating a number of teaching strategies that people can use directly in their classrooms. A few interesting insights have already happened for us when thinking about our own practices. These include: that reflection might look different in different subjects/curriculum areas; that teaching reflection face-to-face might be quite different to teaching it online; that students tend to find oral reflection easier than written reflection. We are therefore hoping to start our scaffolding with oral or other modes of reflection prior to students attempting written reflection. Some of our students have also indicated they need more time to reflect on learning. We would really be interested in knowing what you think?
