Reflective Writing

Reflective writing is an important aspect of academic writing in higher education. These resources and workshops will explore techniques that will allow you to learn from personal and professional experiences, and identify gaps in your knowledge.

Academic Learning Development can offer support with getting going with reflective writing including techniques for recording your reflections and structuring your assignments.
