Description

Students in STEM classes know they are solving difficult problems, yet they are often less aware of the complex analytical skills that they simultaneously acquire. Furthermore, many traditional STEM assignments favor computational approaches, which may encourage students to focus on memorization and imitation thereby avoiding conceptual connections vital to STEM learning. Student reflection makes this higher-order thinking visible and strengthens connections and expertise across courses and disciplines. Guided by literature in reflection, this learning community will give participants the opportunity to discuss the role of reflection in STEM student learning, design and review reflective prompts that can be incorporated into their classrooms, and explore models that build student accountability for quality reflection into course design.
