Education reformer John Dewey said it best: "We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience." This workbook is centered on the idea that experiential learning and time dedicated to guided analysis and reflection are what help students benefit most thoroughly from the experiences they've had. Grounded in the cyclical process of Inquiry-Based Learning, the workbook provides students with a structured approach to processing and communicating the meaning of their experiences and thereby producing a valuable assessment of learning. A true workbook, this tool aims to help instructors formulate effective journal prompts and an appropriate process for reflective work related to almost any experiential learning occurrence.
