I would like to apply reflective thinking in my Records Management class. Has anyone attempted this, or used reflective thinking in a different course? If so, does anyone have examples of questions used?

Yes. I use reflective practices in my College Success courses and in my Ethics classes. In addition, I have a list of reflective prompts I use for discussion boards. Here is my current list of reflective questions that I use to encourage deeper engagement in discussion boards:

We do this with current events and ask students to reflect on popular opinions. They can add a personal reflection or a strategy for change. Your students could reflect an issues that occur in their lives or with records issues. Real world application adds value.
Hope that helps.

I just searched records management cause I was not sure what it was. I love to use reflective thinking in my classes. It helps students think outside the box and be problem solvers. I would say questions like:
- why is it important to maintain records for a specific amount of time? Why or why not? Support your answer.
- would it be wrong to get rid of some records before the designated time period? Why or why not? Support your answer.
You know the subject better than I do but hope it helps.

I just read your post and wanted to share PMI+Q, a reflective activity with you (see below). I usually provide an article for the students to read, annotate, and post their comments in the discussion board using the PMI+Q Chart. I like this acitivity because students really have to think. The answers are not spelled out for them in the article. Other ways you can use this chart is after students have viewed a video or TED talk.
