Using Reflection to Evaluate Course Outcomes
Deggs, David; Weaver, Sue W.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v6 n2 p41-48 Mar-Apr 2009
Student feedback is essential to improving the quality of instruction in higher education. This article chronicles the process by which an end-of-course reflection exercise was used to gather additional feedback from students and to determine learning outcomes in online course for adult learners. Students were given guiding questions for the reflection activity and student responses were analyzed using categorizing strategies. Four themes emerged from the student responses (qualitative data) including academic planning, earlier exposure to the Kolb model, application of Kolb model to career and professional lives, ability to organize and present information, and student satisfaction.
