The main purpose of higher education is to produce skilled graduates so that they can think critically and solve real world problems. Presenting a group based solution in a face-to-face class is a common activity in the higher education classroom where other students/peers can actively participate in the follow-up question/answer sessions. Working out a solution together as a group engages students’ independent thinking ability and promotes active learning. This means, that they have the opportunity to reflect on their own thinking and take it to deeper levels of thinking. However, recent trends show that online support to the higher education class - a form of blended learning is growing day by day. This paper proposes a wiki-based (one of the ICT tools) reflection method to follow up regular existing face-to-face classroom presentation activities to promote deeper thinking levels of students in higher education. In this article, Lee’s Model of thinking levels is-used for analyzing the thinking levels of students during their wiki work. The findings of this research work (through experiments) show that the wiki-based reflection method could be an effective way to promote thinking levels of students and hence can be used as a blended learning model to promote reflective and in-depth thinking.[...] Read more.
