What is the 4 Ls Course Retrospective?
The 4 Ls Course Retrospective is an activity for the whole course team upon completion of a course designed to understand what worked, what didn’t, and what can be improved. The 4Ls stand for liked, learnt, lacked, and longed for.
After a completion of a course, it can be helpful for the team to pause and take stock of what happened. Emotions can run high, so it can be difficult for teams to have a discussion that isn’t marred by frustration or joy. The 4 Ls Course Retrospective is a useful tool that empowers the team to highlight the positive elements of a course cohort and understand the negative, allowing them to think from a factual rather than emotional perspective.
Why use the 4 Ls Course Retrospective?
The 4Ls Course Retrospective is specifically focused on action and improvement,
and can build trust, improve morale, and increase engagement of the course administrating team.
