Reflection and Feedback with Peers
This activity has two parts. The first is a self-reflection piece regarding the two research processes that you recently experienced. The second involves view a peers screencasts, reading their reflective thoughts, and responding.
This activity will not begin until all screencasts have been received by me. I will then pair you with another student and invite you both to a joint GoogleDoc where you will both complete the following tasks:
Part One -- Individual Reflection
Step One: Make sure that you have shared the link to both of your screencasts with me via email.
Step Two: Check your email on ________ (date tbd) to accept an invitation to a shared Googledoc.
Step Three: In the document you will see a heading with your name; under the heading, embed your first screencast (traditional search). After you embed your screencast, write a short reflection regarding your traditional research process. Acknowledge your tendencies, what are strategies you see yourself relying on. What types of sites to you gravitate to? Do you see yourself neglecting any information?
What kind of information did you find? What do you notice about the content of the information? Are there gaps present or perspectives missing?
This should take paragraph form and not exceed 500 words.
Step Four: When you complete Step Three, embed your second screencast (LICRA searching), and complete a reflection below the video that compares and contrasts the process' and the results of the research.
- What are the significant differences between the ways in which you approached your topic between the two screencasts?
- What difficulties did you have with the new thought process required by LICRA?
- What did you notice about the direction your research took? and the results that it produced?
Step One: View your partners screencasts and read their short reflections.
Step Two: Under their second reflection provide them with feedback regarding what you noticed about their research process'.
- Did you catch something that they neglected to mention in their reflection?
- What did you notice about each of the search process' that your peer completed?
- Comment on their research strength's, and make suggestions.
- Did you learn something about your own process in comparison to theirs?
Expect feedback from your instructor after both your partner and you have completed the feedback component.
