Methods and Assessment of
Reflective Learning
In this chapter we explore the doing of reflection, that is methods of reflective learning, in two contexts: the traditional lecture and the workshop approach. Many of the methods mentioned here will be familiar to teachers in HE who may have been using them for years. For them we are simply confirming that their methods are likely to be effective. For those to whom these methods are novel we recommend a 'try it and see' approach. We tried it and have never felt the need to return to earlier methods. We include appropriate methods for large groups as well as a workshop method for introducing students to the whole idea of reflection and how it can be evidenced for assessment.In addition we discuss how a student's reflection may be assessed and why, drawing on reviews of recent research (Elton and Johnston, 2002) to illuminate our thoughts.
Methods of reflection based on a lecture
We offer a range of methods for doing reflection in relation to an event1 or action at the five levels (dimensions) described in Chapter 5 and replicated below:
1. The event or action including the learner's prior propositional or experiential knowledge (prop k); knowledge-in-use (k-in-u) and knowledge-in-action (k-in-a), some of which may be tacit.
2. Any reflection-in-action which may have occurred within the event which could also be tacit.
3. Description of the event particularly including any reflection-in-action.
4. Reflection on the description of the event + r-in-a : this is reflection-onaction because it occurs after the event.
5. Reflection on reflection-on-action.
