Helping students develop habits of reflection: What we can learn from the NILOA Assignment Library

June 2018

Over the last several years, NILOA has worked with faculty from around the country to build an online library of assignments that both foster and provide evidence of student learning. The Library is now approaching 80 entries and growing. A number of those assignments include an explicit requirement that students engage in structured, intentional reflection. The assignments come from a diverse range of fields and institutional types, and include papers, presentations, case studies, group projects, and exams. This report highlights common features between the various assignments, the value and role of reflection, and important developments that can provide synergy for further work on reflective assignments.
