How Can I Promote Deep Learning through Critical Reflection?

Without deep learning, your students can come away from courses with misunderstandings and oversimplified views of complex issues. Learn how the process of critical reflection is a reliable way to deepen the learning experience.

Promote Deep Learning through Critical Reflection

From time to time, we look out across a classroom or lecture hall and wonder,“Is any of this sinking in?”

You all know that mere passive absorption of information is a poor way of learning.

Students should be receiving information, reflecting on it, questioning it, testing it, applying it … really understanding it. Learning deeply, in other words.

Which pedagogical practices will promote that sort of learning?

One is critical reflection, and you can hear about it in this insight-filled Magna 20-Minute Mentor, presented by Barbara Jacoby, Ph.D., Faculty Associate for Leadership and Community Service-Learning, University of Maryland, College Park.

You learn:

  • The process of critical reflection and its impact on learning
  • How to design critical reflection exercises that achieve desired learning outcomes
  • Examples of how critical reflection works in courses in various disciplines
  • Modes of reflection, including oral and written communication, activities, and media
  • How you can assess and grade students on critical reflection

When you’ve completed viewing, you’ll be able to use the presented teaching strategies to:

  • Help students develop a deep and nuanced understanding of complex issues
  • Engage them in considering multiple perspectives
  • Strengthen their critical-thinking ability
