Other programmes within the UCL Institute of Education have already begun to use this model.
This eight-month program, which meets on Wednesday evenings, has four distinct phases.
Early in the program, writers will first receive feedback on three to five essays, then in later phases, revise and workshop three essays in hopes for publication.
No single type of essay or essayist will be favored.Writers will also consult in private tutorial with the instructor for two one-hour sessions.Guest writers and editors will visit the class to share their wisdom and advice on publishing, the marketplace and career-building as an essayist.“Another said: “The more reflection you can do the better”.However, Dr Hughes advises, “This approach needs careful introduction so that students are aware of the benefits of documenting a feedback response and so that they do not see the process as bureaucratic or just another form to fill in.It also might alert staff to any problems students have about feedback at both an individual and group level.“If students feel like they don’t have enough feedback to reflect on in the first place, the forms might flag this issue and give an opportunity to address the problem,” says Dr Hughes.“Some students may need reminding where the feedback is and how it might be useful to reflect upon.”In focus groups Dr Hughes ran, many students said they reviewing their feedback was useful.Grub Street is offering an informal Q&A with instructor Ethan Gilsdorf on June 27th to answer any questions you have about the Incubator, including the workload, the application process, what the program does and doesn’t entail, the schedule, the philosophy behind our approach, and anything else on your mind. Partial fellowships are available and based on a combination of merit and financial need.You can find more details about our fellowships here.Students also need to have enough time for the reflection process so that they do not leave completing the form until the submission date.” Students on the Ed D attended a session to hear more about how to get the most out of the process.This approach can be adopted by any programme looking to improve students’ self-reflection.
