Tips from the Pros: Use Structured Reflection to Improve Your Online Course
Understanding your students’ experience in your online course can help you improve the course for future students. One way to do this is through structured reflection. Lynn Akin, associate professor of library and information sciences at Texas Woman’s University, recommends asking students to reflect on their experience in specific aspects of the course. She asks, “What would you have done differently?” This gets students to think about how they learn and possible ways to improve how they learn.
