EDUX 9923: Reflecting on Elevate Your Instructional Practice

Registration Closed

Course Overview

“The ordinary experiences of our teaching days are the essence of our practice. Using a guide to reflect
on these experiences is an entry to improving our teaching” (Hole and McEntee). Selecting one
implemented goal from EDUX 9922 and serving as a member of a small online PLC discussion group,
participants in this class will step through a guided reflection process to examine and share their
implementation experiences. Using on-line video conferencing technology, the PLC will conclude by
participating in a coaching conversation facilitated by the course instructor that will provide a perfect
face-to-face platform for self-reflection, idea sharing, and a determination about the impact on their
future professional practice.


By the end of the course, the participant will:

  • Engage in a professional learning community.
  • Reflect on the implementation of a goal from EDUX 9922.
  • Participate in the Guided Reflection Protocol process for individual and shared reflection.
  • Demonstrate what was learned through a coaching conversation.
  • Refine teaching practice based on the Guided Reflection Protocol experiences.
