The Lesson Reflection template facilitates the online learning process, and it’s a way to actively check-in with your students and find out if your teaching methods are effective.

How to make a Lesson Reflection template in Miro 

Making your Lesson Reflection is easy. Miro’s whiteboard tool is the perfect canvas to create and share with your students. Get started by selecting the Lesson Reflection Template, then take the following steps to make one of your own.

Step 1:

Ask yourself: what’s the goal of the lesson? What do I need my students to learn or to know after the class? Define the why. 

Step 2: 

Write the questions in each of the fields of the template. The template contains four question fields, but you can add two more if you see the need. It’s best practice not to keep it too long to be objective and focus on one key area of your lesson. 

After you defined the questions of your Lesson Reflection template, add them to the respective fields. 

Step 3: 

Share the Lesson Reflection board with each student or invite them to add stickies to each question field. 

Evaluate the answers and try to cluster them by topic and commonalities. After clustering, it can be easier to identify your students' pain points and achievements.
