MURAL University Template Wednesday - Course Retrospective
Hello Educators! We are half-way through the summer and it’s the perfect time to hit the pause button, reflect on how things went for your courses over the past spring or year, and think about actions you can take to make improvements for the next term. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to run a retrospective in MURAL. It's a safe space for reviewing the successes, identifying opportunities for improvement, and solving issues that may have come up.
Retrospectives can provide several benefits, including:
- Creating a safe space for addressing issues in a solution-oriented way
- Bringing teaching teams or departments together to solve problems
- Identifying opportunities to elevate your teaching or processes
- Documenting successes and challenges, including incorporating feedback
To quickly get started, try using this Retrospective Template that is great to run solo or with a few collaborators.
For a teaching team or department, try using this Project Retrospective Template by LUMA Institute.
What do you think? How do you (and your teaching team) reflect? Let me know in the comments below:
