Developing EmployABILITY lead Professor Dawn Bennett has been working with Professor Carol Evans to develop a series of student resources and educator guides on critical reflection and feedback.
This week’s featured resource, Assessing reflective writing, is from the series. The educator guide identifies key characteristics of critically reflective writing that can be used in developing explicit assessment criteria.
The aim of critically reflective activities is to move from description to thoughtful analysis of a context. Critical reflection enables students to explore a context from different perspectives and to examine reactions, beliefs and values to confirm and/or change their position. It is central to learning and highly sought-after by recruiters and employers.
All members of the Developing EmployABILITY community have access to the new resource. To become a member, sign up here. These employABILITY resources are free of charge.
