Abstract

Reflection is widely used in experience based learning (Moon, 2004). A review of the literature reveals limited empirical evidence for the correlation between reflection and positive student learning outcomes. A substantial body of anecdotal evidence, together with evidence based on student satisfaction and selfwreporting, indicates the value of reflection for learning. This paper systematically explores existing evidence for the practice of reflection and presents strategies for learning and teaching of reflection in the context of experience based learning. Models informed by theory and developed as a result of this research are introduced.
