Topic: "Reflection and reflective practice in WIL"
Guest Presenter: Dr Patricia Lucas, AUT University, New Zealand.
Reflection is crucial to meaning-making and has long been employed in WIL courses to guide students toward discovering, exploring, and evaluating practical experiences. Reflection as a writing tool is also often utilized with WIL based assessments. In this session, discipline groups will be encouraged to discuss and share insights on how they employ reflection in their courses.
