Encourage students to look at what’s working and what can be changed in a constructive manner that can lead to action.
Can be used for student self-reflection on their own practices OR for reflecting on the course OR for giving peer feedback.
Choose a prompt such as:
- At the beginning or middle of the semester: What would you continue, start, stop doing this semester in order to be successful in your courses?
- In the middle of the semester: What should I (the teacher) continue, start, and stop doing this semester in order to make this course a good learning experience for you?
- After learning about something related to course content (e.g. about how to improve digital security, or about bias/othering), encourage student reflection on their own practices beyond theory: what would you stop, start and continue doing in your own life/profession after learning this?
This can be done in 5 or 10 minutes during class, or as a longer reflective assignment. It can be done individually at first and then in small groups.
