Developing EmployABILITY lead researcher Professor Dawn Bennett has worked with Professor Carol Evans to develop a series of student resources and educator guides on critical reflection and feedback.
This week’s featured resource, How good are your emotional regulation strategies?, comes from the series. The student resource encourages students to identify the strategies they most commonly used to manage emotions, and to use Kolb and Fry’s (1975) experiential circle to reflect critically on these strategies.
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.
How good are your emotional regulation strategies? is most effective if students have first created a personalised employability profile as part of the 10-step Developing EmployABILITY process.
All members of the Developing EmployABILITY community have access to the new resource. To become a member, visit the site. There is no charge for any employABILITY resources.
