metacognitive reflections about their participation in these informal learningenvironments.Background and MotivationThe conceptualization of “thinking about thinking” has evolved since Flavell [8] first discussedmetacognition. Researchers have agreed that metacognition consists of knowledge of cognitionand regulation of cognition [8, 19, 20, 25]. Knowledge about cognition describes individuals’self-knowledge, knowledge about strategies, as well as appropriate application of differentstrategies in practice. Knowledge about cognition consists of three types of knowledge includingdeclarative knowledge, procedural knowledge and conditional knowledge [10]. Regulation ofcognition indicates that individuals are capable of planning, managing information

Students from all engineering disciplines at WSU take this course and work as ateam on several course requirements. This paper describes the existing service-learning courseand presents the motivation behind its development with a review of the literature on servicelearning and the content of the course. The paper then focuses on the structured reflectioncomponent of the class. The reflective component of the class instills the broad aspects desiredby industry.MOTIVATIONThe primary goal of the Wichita State University (WSU) College of Engineering (CoE) is toeducate and prepare students to succeed in the engineering field upon

Understanding Reflection Activities BroadlyAbstractMaking informed decisions among potential reflection activities can be challenging forengineering educators. Information about the knowledge gains resulting from different reflectionactivities would be valuable for engineering educators seeking to make informed choices. In thefirst part of the work described here, we describe a conceptual framework that summarizes typesof knowledge gains resulting from engagement in reflection activities. In the second part of thework, we report on data from students who engaged in reflection activities.IntroductionReflection, a form of thinking that involves stepping out of that which is personal in order tocreate new understanding, is important for education

IntroductionAs I teach and advise engineering students, I am constantly amazed at their motivation, theircapacity for hard work, their intelligence. But I am also often amazed at their lack of self-awareness, at their “can’t see the forest for the trees” approach to getting through each hour, eachday, each semester, a college education. They refer, often jokingly, to “getting out,” instead ofgraduating, and they

For novice designers, developingreflection abilities may be particularly important as it may both help them develop this specificability and more broadly develop their design thinking abilities.
