Journals

What Is It?

Journals are a private place for students to post their thoughts. These can be thoughts on course material, personal thoughts, ideas, criticisms, etc. Journal assignments may be created.

Why faculty use Journals?

Journals are a self-reflective tool offering students an opportunity for developing critical thinking and writing skills in a non-threatening manner. Although private in nature journal entries can be shared enabling communication between students. Journals provide instructors with a sense of how well students understand, remember, and apply course concepts and material.
