Developing a Disposition of Critically Reflectice Practice: Key Concepts and Good Practices

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 4:30pm to 7:00pm

Warren Hall, 401

To paraphrase educational philosopher, John Dewey, “we don’t learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” The workshop will focus on key concepts in critical reflection and offer a number of tools to cultivate participants’ skills to engage in high quality critical reflection before, during and after the service-learning experience. Through small group work and interactive exercises, we will engage with a variety of critically reflective methods aimed at distilling learning outcomes that result from service-learning experiences, as well as developing a lifelong disposition of reflective practice.
