Anticipation-Action-Reflection (AAR) Cycle

The Anticipation-Action-Reflection (AAR) cycle is an iterative learning process whereby learners continuously improve their thinking and act intentionally and responsibly, moving towards long-term goals that contribute to collective well-being. Through planning, experience and reflection, learners deepen their understanding and broaden their perspective.
