Schon and Yancey have contended that reflection enables people to theorize their own practices so that they can improve their work. Presenters examine how specific reflective course components influenced student learning in the humanities. Presenters show how student learning is affected by incorporating instruction in reflective theory along with intentional and explicit reflective assignments and activities. Relying on student data in the form of journal entries, writers’ memos, mid-term reflections, and online, shared reflection in forums this panel explored key themes in the use of reflective writing: the challenge of knowledge transfer, responding to course goals/outcomes, key terms, and students’ own theories about writing.
