1 Dr. J. Connell © 2009 Dr. John Connell Leeds Metropolitan University Raising achievement, developing knowledge, focussing on understanding, capturing learning and above all, enhancing confidence: a process of learning and teaching to enhance students knowledge, skills and understanding. Individual Reflective Profile Log

2 Dr. J. Connell © 2009

3 Aim The main aim of the research is to ascertain the effectiveness of teaching and learning using a relatively simple means of assessment, the: Individual Reflective Profile Log (IRPL).

4 Dr. J. Connell © 2009 Objectives Outline current literature utilising reflective practice as a tool for assessment and learning. The IRPL as a means of formative assessment. Methodology - Construction of the research design: Questionnaire Semi structured interviews – individual and focus group Analysis Findings Next steps

5 Dr. J. Connell © 2009 Literature TDA 2007:Q7 p8 Dewey (1933) Schön (1987, 1983) Moon (2004, 1999) Fisher (2003) Prior and Crossouard (2008 Leijen et al (2008) Ulrich (2009) Regmi (2009)

8 Methodology Construction of the research design: Questionnaire Semi structured interviews – individual and focus group

9 Dr. J. Connell © 2009 IRPL - Fact The students record in writing the presented information experienced in the lecture, this involved the fact (what was taught). Students we would expect to make notes on the lecture or even do follow up reading. Some do, the IRPL is a means by which the articulation of factual information is rewarded.

10 Dr. J. Connell © 2009

11 The students then have the opportunity to write their feelings (personal reflections) about what was taught. The recording of personal feelings can be quite private and there is a need to recognise this and the confidentiality attached to individual students perceptions of different occurrences. IRPL - Feeling

12 Dr. J. Connell © 2009

13 IRPL - Application The application of what was taught in the lecture (how this information can be used in other situations). The application is also an opportunity for students to demonstrate their personal understanding of what was taught by suggesting ways in which they might apply the variety of themes to different teaching situations. The articulation of the students thoughts provides further opportunities to discuss the theory and practice of the lecture.

14 Dr. J. Connell © 2009

15 IRPL - Evidence The final section of the IRPL is the evidence (supporting work of other authors opinions). For students to fully engage in the theory and practice of the lecture and enhance the academic rigour attached to the work there is a need to support their beliefs with authored evidence. The importance of this section to the IRPL is the research, reading and referencing of supporting evidence
