Research at IUPUI and elsewhere demonstrates convincingly that reflection can help students define themselves as learners and professionals, contribute to their development, enhance their engagement, and provide rich information for assessment and improvement. With effective guidance, reflection encourages students to make connections among learning experiences across courses and disciplines and between classroom and out-of-class experiences. The extensive body of scholarship on reflection can be daunting, however, and the term “reflection” itself is variously defined across disciplines. This workshop will provide an overview of the basic roles and purposes of reflection in ePortfolios and share practices used by IUPUI faculty in teaching students how to interpret, comprehend, and integrate their learning through reflection.
