The Instruction Section is sponsoring a pre-conference workshop at ALA Annual, for the first time in many years. See below for details and visit the website for additional information.
 
Reflective teaching: Self-evaluation to assess and improve your teaching practice
 
Friday, June 26, 1-4 pm
 
Workshop leaders: Wendy Holliday and Anne-Marie Deitering

 

Reflection is a central component of effective teaching practice and successful student learning. But reflection can sometimes seem fuzzy, without purpose, and lack connection to larger program goals. In this three-hour workshop, participants will learn techniques and strategies for more structured and intentional reflection. Participants will learn how to identify, articulate, and diagnose teaching and learning “problems” that they encounter in the classroom, analyze their role as a teacher in that situation, and then apply techniques of reflective practice to address those learning problems and improve student learning. Participants will also explore collaborative reflective practices in order to build reflective practice into their instruction programs.
