Limited Capacity seats available

Self-reflection is a critical component of teaching; yet, many educators do not objectively view their practice outside the scope of their specific discipline. This presentation will show how journals were used for a cohort of graduate students - in special education and other educational disciplines - to reflect on their leadership skills as they pertain to students with significant support needs. Students chronicled their journeys as they critically reflect on their current belief system and their future educational leadership roles in relation to students with severe disabilities. After this session, the learner will be able to: a) discuss the benefits of using journals to encourage self-reflection; b) discuss examples of how self-reflective journals can impact practice; c) identify steps to determine thematic journaling prompts.
