Frequently Asked Questions

Reflective learning and reflective practice are important tools in both academic and professional learning settings. People learn better from their studies or own experiences, by more explicitly engaging additional thought by either thinking, discussing or writing. It may be the most important source of personal professional development and improvement one can undertake. It is also an important way to bring together theory and practice; through reflection a person can better understand theory within the context of his or her own work. A person who reflects throughout his or her practice is not just looking back on past actions and events, but is taking a conscious look at emotions, experiences, actions, and responses, and using that information to add to his or her existing knowledge base and reach a higher level of understanding and professional projection of themselves to others.

Acadiate enables and supports different levels of reflective practice with many levels of reflection mechanisms. It is up to each school, program or faculty member to configure the ideal reflection points, questions and frequency. The platform supports academic journals that can be stand-alone reflection journals or connect with particular schoolwork to contextualize the reflection. 

Acadiate also provides a pathway for students to repurpose coursework for potential presentation to employers to show transferable skills and knowledge. Acadiate takes students through an additional layer of reflection to search, collect and adjust coursework to better project their professional persona in their field of study. 

Acadiate can get your program up and running in a few easy steps. (1) First is a consultation on what your needs and objectives are and how many students will using the platform, (2) Acadiate will setup a dedicated, school branded web portal to onboard your students, (3) Acadiate will setup the course or program clusters for students to share their Showcase work with the instructor to evaluate student progress. 

This implementation can be deployed within 48 hours and all technical support is provided by Acadiate. 

Yes, our platform supports mentorship. Our unique approach to matching mentees with mentors is through an application process using a Showcase, similar to applying to an employer for a job. The key advantage of our mentorship module, is setup is quick and easy and is fully automated, requiring very little faculty time. It also monitors and reports on the progress of the mentorships enabling any number of relationships and lengths of mentorship to be implemented.

The goal of our free trial is to prove our value to your institute and its students. Each school has different objectives and needs so we do not offer a one size fits all free pilot. We take a consultative approach and design free pilots to prove Acadiate can meet the specific needs of your school. Contact us for details on how to get your free trial started.
