JEDI Journalling

Facilitated by Kira Donnell

Join us as we explore ways in which journalling can be used as a JEDI pedagogical tool and consider how journalling can be incorporated as a reflective teaching practice. We will think about how journalling can be used as a way to reflect on and organize our professional careers as educators. We will also discuss how we might use journals and journalling as a tool for student success.
