We know that reflection is a key part of assessment in project-based learning and deeper learning. Yet, how do we get students to probe into their own learning process and reflect on how to become better learners? This workshop will share how we use digital portfolios and exit interviews as key pieces to guarantee greater levels of reflection leading up to and following public exhibitions. In this workshop, we present a model for “backward-planning” of a semester-long project by creating checkpoint projects and mini-units that lead to a final product. Participants will actively examine student-created digital portfolios for both STEM and Humanities to experience how powerful they can be as end-products and as reflection tools. Examining the portfolio for the components of well-crafted projects, participants will see how checkpoint projects are a key element we have used with students. Lastly, we will model the final exit interview, in which students verbally communicate their reflection on the process of the project and how they will apply what they learned to their future. While planning a long-term project can be overwhelming, this workshop breaks down the steps to an effective process and demonstrates the power of using website building and interviewing as assessment.
