Tips for Writing Reflectively

The video presentation for this session identifies some common models you can use as a framework to help guide your reflective writing in addition to walking you through an example of applying one of the models to write a sample reflection. In the Resources section, a downloadable exemplar of the sample reflection outlined in the video is provided in addition to some other great tools. A range of useful weblinks are also available to help you further develop your reflective writing and English language skills.
