Reflective Learning

Reflective learning is a critical aspect of deep and integrated learning, which allows students to connect their learning with other insights and experiences, both inside and outside the classroom. Students who engage in reflective learning while abroad are more likely to develop intercultural skills and awareness. They are also better able to integrate their learning experiences abroad into experiences and ideas they had prior to going abroad.

Given the effectiveness of reflective learning, particularly for a study abroad experience, this Faculty Learning Community is for those interested in exploring reflecting learning in the context of leading a WFU study abroad program and/or teaching overseas, using e-portfolio as a platform for reflective learning.
