‘Reflective’ writing is new to most people. The comments below point to the confusions around what reflective writing is when it is part of a course or programme, which, of course, is assessed in some way or another: ‘I thought I wasn’t supposed to use “I” in my writing…’ ‘I’m not putting what I really think if it’s going to be assessed!!’ ‘They say to reflect on the link between theory and practice – but what does that mean?’ ‘Can I say what I think without backing it up with references?’ You can see the tension, the opposite pulls, in reflective writing required as part of a college programme.
