As a the MAELM Residency began and we continued to create presentations and write our assignments, I realized how we were continually learning on a multitude of levels through self-reflection (Heyler, 2015). It wasn’t until I looked back at all that we had accomplished and realized that the EDLM 525 course was designed as Helyer suggested; that is through purposeful self-reflection in short assignments that are being transformed to this document, we developed skills as beginner “reflective practioners”. This is a skill that I would like to pass on to my future students, to be able to reflect on material presented and connect it to real world applications.
