July 31 - Reflection in Teaching: A 30 Day Challenge - Joel MacDonald
12pm-1pm - Rm 292, Robertson Library
Reflection is the mediator between knowledge and experience and is a vital skill for instructional professionals in order to continuously improve their teaching. Does becoming a more reflective practitioner sound good to you?  In this workshop, participants will be provided with exercises to practice reflection daily over a 30 day period. This is a collaborative learning experience as participants will share between them and comment on their daily reflections. This workshop consists of two face-to-face sessions (July 31 and August 31, 12:00-1:00 PM, Rm 292 Robertson Library) with the remainder of events, occurring between those sessions, online. Register early as space is limited for this event.  REGISTER
