Boston University – Reflection as Integrative, Social Pedagogy: The College of General Studies’ Freshman End-of-Year Reflection

Our practice engages students in a comprehensive reflection on all the courses they’ve taken in the freshman year at the College of General Studies (CGS), using a rubric we’ve designed based on AAC & U models to assess the work they have posted on their ePortfolios throughout their freshman year. Our College is a two-year, interdisciplinary, core-curriculum program that gives students the opportunity to take their general education courses in a team structure that allows for connections to be made among their courses (Humanities, Rhetoric and Social Science in the freshman year, and Humanities, Natural Science and Social Science in their sophomore year). Students take one elective each semester and continue on into the college of their major in their junior year, having completed all their general education requirements and some of their major requirements.
