Reflection Roundtable

Friday, April 24

After recent reflection workshops it seems many of us have some desire to talk about reflection and how we can do it with our students, using each other as resources. The CVR invites you to join our Reflection Roundtable, reserved in the Wilson Center on Fridays of weeks 7, 8, 9, and 10. Provide your own lunch, but enjoy dessert on the CVR. Join this open forum as your schedule permits.
