Event Details

This will be both a session on best practices in the use of reflective journals in Blackboard as well as a discussion on journaling in online courses. Journals have been found as an effective means of accomplishing/developing self-knowledge (Black et al, 2000). Other research has found that journals facilitate learning by enhancing students' ability to make multiple connections within a course (O'Rourke, 1998). Perhaps if you don't currently use journaling, you might after this session! We'll also compare journals to blogs.
