Configuring life histories

Hughes, Jonathan and Lucas, Michael (2008). Configuring life histories. In: The Teaching-Research Interface: Implications for Practice in HE and FE, 29-30 Apr 2008, University of Stirling.


The aim of the project was carry out a short investigation to help better understand what tools/skills/ideas students need to help them learn to reflect. 
The overall aims of the project and of this proposal are to explore:
The difficulties students (particularly from widening participation audiences) have in engaging with reflection in general and the range of reflective activity included on courses in particular.
To gauge what features and what contexts of reflexive activity are best suited to encourage the use of reflection and which may inhibit reflection.
To establish how students have used reflection and the impact this has had on their lives.
To report and record this information in ways which can be accessed by students in order to enhance engagement and valuation of reflection.
To make available to academics and course teams information that can assist with the integration of reflective learning.
