Critical Reflection

A staff and faculty guide for those already utilizing or hoping to utilize learning portfolios as a learning tool for critical reflection in the classroom. Connect experiences in and out of the classroom, student backgrounds, and life experiences in a synergetic approach to students putting learning into their own words. 

The mission of Critical Inquiry-Critical Reflection is . . .

  • To implement integrative learning strategies in teaching and learning spaces (e.g., classrooms, academic programs, experiential learning, etc.) that encourage evidence-based interrogation and meaning-making

  • To facilitate creative and critical analysis of ideas and experiences across and within disciplinary, interdisciplinary, curricular, and co-curricular context
