Please Note: Reflective writing is defined by Moon (n.d.) as the ‘expression …of some of the mental processes of reflection’…’ reflection lies somewhere around the notion of learning and thinking’. Reflective writing has a purpose and it involves sorting out knowledge, ideas, awareness, emotions etc with a view to ‘either recognise that you have learnt something new or that you need to reflect more with, perhaps further input’. Reflective writing also has an end point, you may write a conclusive statement stating what you have come to know, discover or learn, or you may choose to make an inconclusive statement but with a clear statement of what you need to consider next in the process. Develop your own voice in your paper which means you have to write
using ‘first person’ pronoun in your reflection.
