In my teaching, I try to promote reflective thinking in my students by having them not only complete learning activities before and during class, but to reflect on their learning through the activities and record these reflections. Using Moodle as the medium for recording these reflections offers a number of advantages both to students (principally due to the persistence of the artefacts within the digital medium) and to me as the instructor. In this presentation, I will report on how I use Moodle in my face-to-face courses to help students reflect on their learning as they progress towards achieving the course learning outcomes. I will report on examples of student work, Moodle tracking data, and student survey results that analyze the benefits to students of using Moodle in this way. As well, I will discuss how this helps me to be a more reflective practitioner and to be more responsive to the needs of my students. Lastly, I will engage attendees to participate in discussing how Moodle and other LMS can be used to further support students in reflecting on their learning.
