Reflecting on Reflection – The Value of Making Meaning (EP:07)
With Justin Kreuter, MD

Reflection is a transformative and multifaceted practice that has the potential to impact education, learners, and even educators in profound ways. Its application has the distinct ability to allow individuals to connect current and prior knowledge while simultaneously synthesizing emotional and cognitive information – all while applying insights towards the future. In this episode, physician and educator Justin Kreuter, MD chats with Stacy Craft about reflection in education and beyond, personal insights, and practical ideas for beginning reflection.

Introducing Mayo Clinic Educator’s Central (formerly Edufi)

Hey Everyone, just a quick update for you – Edufi is excited to announce that we will be changing our name to Mayo Clinic Educator’s Central and getting a new look. Our focus will still remain the same, creating podcasts exploring technology, pedagogy, and topics in instructional design and education for all educators and we will also be joining the lineup of official Mayo Clinic podcasts. So, when you see our new name, know its the same great content serving educators across the board from the individuals just dipping their toe in education to professional educators in corporate, higher education, non profit etc. It may take a short bit while we transition our name, so just keep this in mind as you see it. With that said, we have a lot of exciting episodes in store for you so keep listening for new Mayo Clinic Educator’s Central episodes.
