Talk:Understanding Reflection: Using the Reflective Learning Journal

1) I liked/What works well, Lisa, Great job on your mini-course! The layout and design is so user friendly and makes you want to learn! It flows nicely and the pictures help organize the learner. 2) Have you considered this? The only suggestion I have is about the youtube video that you selected. While very informative, I wonder if it truly engages learners. I was looking to include an informative video in my first unit of the mini-course, but found them not to motivate learning and decided to go with an article instead. Just something to consider, otherwise great start!

What I like/What worked well:

* Intro: course title, clear info about what to expect in course, nice picture, clear headings for each lesson, love the icons.

* Lesson 1: Nice pre-assessment. Nice image, information well chunked(though see note below about headings), great resources, relevant meaningful activities that incorporate REFLECTION!

What you might consider:

* Intro: Please link back to main class page.

* Lesson 1:Bolder headings will give you a cleaner look, add links to other lessons in addition to "next lesson". Some people will want to move between lessons. I recommend that you use the address as follows for you slide show as it take the user right to it. Media:Reflection_Learning_Theories_slides.pdf

Evaluation -- Amanda Martin (talk) 18:49, 30 April 2014 (EDT)

Hello Lisa,

I want to start off by saying that I have been keeping tabs on your project throughout this entire module and always went back to it to use as a guide with mine. Your mini-course was a great example to follow in times of confusion!

What I like:

I love how you used the discussion tab up top for your activity. I hadn’t thought of this and have seen it in both of the mini-courses I’ve evaluated so far. This is a great idea! You have some pretty awesome bullets and mini images to go along with your entire mini-course; I love that!


In your pre-assessment, the third bullet looked empty until I realized it goes to the question below it. In Unit 2, is there a way you could make the pdf file under Didactic Instruction to be a direct link to the pdf? I had mentioned this to Lauren Steers as well. I’m not sure you can do that or not.

You have created a phenomenal mini-course! It’s very in depth and leaves little room for confusion. Your questions were a great addition to each section along with the various outside sources/videos. Great job, Lisa!
