Abstract Title: The Role of Student Reflection in Project-based Learning Physics Courses
Abstract: This poster will present the results of a study of student reflections from several project-based learning (PBL) courses at Creighton, including an upper-division quantum mechanics course and a freshman-level integrated calculus and physics course. Student reflections give interesting insights into areas of the course such student motivation, changes in students' epistemologies, teaming issues, and the effectiveness of the project-based pedagogy.  We will present several lessons learned from having students write frequent reflective essays, as well as discuss strategies for increasingly the usefulness of embedded reflection within the course.
