Reflection and Feedback with Student Employees

We are all interested in seeing the students we work with succeed. Helping them to reflect on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) they are developing is a vital role you can play in supporting their success in meeting personal, professional, and academic goals.

Taking the time to connect for reflection and feedback can help your student employees see the purpose in their work. Students that see meaning and value in what they are doing tend to be more committed. Regular check-ins with student employees can help you catch challenges before they become roadblocks and providing regular feedback can improve job performance throughout their contract.

Reflection and feedback can be an important tools in getting the best out of your students.
