Embedding Core Competencies
Reflective Learning Journal
The subject redesign of Contemporary Spain includes a Reflective Learning Journal that will also be incorporated into other Contemporary Society subjects, including Contemporary Canada (Quebec).
I was awarded a Teaching & Learning grant of $2000 for the creation of teaching resources, able to be shared across cognate subjects, to assist students of Contemporary Society to write “compact reflections” of 250 words. I led a small team of casual academic staff members to create resources that will be used for the first time in Spring 2019.
