LC Module: Changing Perceptions

“Without reflection, learning ends well short of the re-organization of thinking that deep’ learning requires. Effective learning situations require time for thinking. Reflection challenges students to use critical thinking to examine presented information, question its validity, and draw conclusions based on the resulting ideas.” (Intime, 2015)
