Using Self-Reflection to Increase Science Process Skills in the General Chemistry Laboratory
Veal, William R.; Taylor, Dawne; Rogers, Amy L.
Journal of Chemical Education, v86 n3 p393-398 Mar 2009
Self-reflection is a tool of instruction that has been used in the science classroom. Research has shown great promise in using video as a learning tool in the classroom. However, the integration of self-reflective practice using video in the general chemistry laboratory to help students develop process skills has not been done. Immediate video feedback and direct instruction were employed in a general chemistry laboratory course to improve students' mastery and understanding of basic and advanced process skills. Qualitative results and statistical analysis of quantitative data proved that self-reflection significantly helped students develop basic and advanced process skills, yet did not seem to influence the general understanding of the science content.
