Video: The Reflection Process Explained (Video 8:43 Min.)

  Information to complete your reflections may be found on the Moodle site.  There are 10 Article Reflections, 1 reflection on What is Flipped Learning (to be completed during the first week of class), and 1 reflection on Project Based Learning (to be completed during the second week of class).  Complete these reflections based on the directions given on the Moodle website.  
Reflective assignments may include various articles within different formats, e.g., HTML, Adobe Reader, Web pages, etc. A goal of this course is to provide individuals with the ability to access information from the Internet. The delivery of this course content is very similar to a virtual classroom; therefore, it is important to retrieve this information independently. Printing documents from this Website is acceptable. However, if at all possible try to read the documents directly from the Internet.   
  Writing reflections requires the ability to identify the topic or thesis statement of the article.  When completing your reflections, stay within the parameter of the thesis statement.  The reflection should not contain your opinions or broad statements that are out of context.  Generalized or rhetorical statements should also be avoided.  
  For this course, we are using an online Moodle Forum (web discussion). You should be able to log into your Moodle site to access the Reflection Course Content.  The Mooldle site will be listed as EDUC216/515 SU15. If you have difficulty logging into the Moodle site, please send an e-mail to Mike Verna ( and request his assistance for logging into Moodle. He is usually very fast at responding to your request.
