Reflective Writing


The key to reflecting is spotting the patterns and links in thought, which emerge as a result of your experiences in life and in learning. Sometimes this is difficult for learners because the focus is on you and this might not feel comfortable – especially in an academic context where you are usually encouraged to depersonalise your work – particularly your essays and reports.

The great benefit of including reflection in your learning is that, by understanding why you do something in a particular way and recognising how you feel about it, you can spot where your strengths and weaknesses lie. This gives you the chance to build on your strengths and develop strategies to minimise your weaknesses.
