Reflective Learning: Theory and Practice.
Sugerman, Deborah A.; Doherty, Kathryn L.; Garvey, Daniel E.; Gass, Michael A.
An outdoor education leader's job is quite complex--the planning, logistics, preparation, teaching, watching, being aware of safety can be overwhelming. Pulling it all together so that participants can express what they learned from the experience is sometimes overlooked. The reflective process is integral to the success of learning, yet it takes as much planning and preparation as the rest of the experience. This book about reflection aims to aid facilitators in the planning and implementation of reflective teaming experiences. The first three chapters deal with theoretical aspects of reflective learning. Chapter 1 develops the definition of reflection and discusses learning models in relation to reflection. Chapter 2 explains techniques used by facilitators and includes a model for facilitator feedback to be used in the field. Chapter 3 discusses the ethics of facilitation, with guidelines for facilitators. The final section of the book compiles activities to use in reflective learning experiences. For easy reference, activities are divided into sections: activities that can be used before or after the experience, and those that do or do not need props. (Contains 38 references.) (TD)
