Learning Reflections: A Journey of Innovation and Integration (PP130), Paper
Although learning reflections (LRs) have proven their effectiveness as a powerful learning tool, their application seems hard in some contexts. For many students writing LRs is an alien activity that is conceived as a useless, imposed burden. This presentation is based on the presenters’s journey with exploratory action research to innovate practical LRs. It narrates how the students and the presenter worked together to reach a better understanding and therefore a new practical way of doing LRs.
