Title:
Reflective Writing Discussion
Material:
Description:
Once the students have completed the lesson on 'Reflection and Reflective Writing', they discuss an article from 'The Sunday Times' entitled "Depression Drugs Don't Work". The discussion is online and uses the Blackboard discussion forum. The students are divided into small groups (7 or 8) to encourage commenting. The students write posts at the three levels of reflection - descriptive, dialogic and critical described in the lesson. The posts should be about 200-300 words. Students receive formative feedback from their tutors. There is a small grade for their contribution.
