#LTHEchat 33 with Dr Hala Mansour @HalaMansour on Reflective Writing Spaces: Students’ Engagement and Challenges

Reflective writing in academic context involves reflective thinking of an event or idea happened to explore or to understand why and how it happened. It is quite challenging for students to stand back from a situation and evaluate their experience and feelings and reflect this on their writing.

How do you facilitate reflective writing for students? How using reflective writing spaces could help students to be engaged and to learn in an effective way?
