The students complete the unit, and resurrection is the point immediately after completion where they emerge from the special world, transformed by their experiences. They emerge anew, and can begin to view a world that is different, one which appears more subtle and more complex than it once did. This is the stage when the students can look back on the unit and consider the journey they have just completed.
Diagnostic questions for stage xi):
- How does the unit end for the students? Is the feedback process here different to feedback within the unit?
- Are there decisions to be made for future units (such as options to select)? How is this handled? How much referring back to the recent learning journey is made?
- Are students guided through a reflection process, such as a review of the unit and reflection as part of an institutional Personal Development Planning (PDP) process?
This is also a good time for you to consider the feedback on the unit – is there a monitoring process in place? What does this include? As well as considering what your students thought about the unit, what did you make of it?
- What did you enjoy the most about teaching this unit?
- Why did the unit start where it did, and why did it develop and end in the way that it did?
- What are some of the things that your students did in this unit that impressed you the most?
- What have you learned about the subject from teaching this unit?
- What have you learned about teaching from teaching this unit?
- How will you run the unit differently next time as a result of your experiences?
