Who will you involve in the process?
In the Army, we had a part of every mission called the After Action Report. This was conducted at the end of the mission. It involved everyone who participated in the mission. The purpose was to see what went well to build upon for future missions and what didn’t go so well to improve preparation for future missions. This would be my guiding process for conducting a post-PBL reflection.
What will your process look like?
I would start with a self-reflection. This would allow the opportunity to think about issues that each person feels needs to be discussed. Then each team would meet before bringing everyone together for a class discussion. This gradual build-up could increase participation if students don’t feel like they are being put on a spot. Afterwards, a final self-reflection to absorb all the information. This would be followed by a similar process that occurs among the staff to institute changes for future projects.
Is it just a one-time assessment?
For any assessment to have value, there must be action that leads to changes. These changes will in turn produce new results and new issues which would require more changes. Like any educational process, in order to flourish, these changes are necessary to prevent stagnation of learning.
