Reflection, or thinking about our experiences, is the key to learning. Reflection allows us to analyze our experiences, make changes based on our mistakes, keep doing what is successful, and build upon or modify past knowledge based on new knowledge. Reflection also allows us to make connections between courses or between school, work and home. By doing this, we begin to see how all parts of our lives are connected and to understand that we are a part of the web of life.
To help you get more from your experience at GateWay, we would like to invite you to reflect on each course taken this semester, assess what you have learned and explain what connections you see or can make between classes and between school, work and home.
