What is reflective writing?
Reflective writing is evidence of reflective thinking. In an academic context, reflective thinking usually
1 Looking back at something (often an event, i.e. something that happened, but it could also be an idea or object).
2 Analysing the event or idea (thinking in depth and from different perspectives, and trying to explain, often with reference to a model or theory from your subject).
3 Thinking carefully about what the event or idea means for you and your ongoing progress as a learner and/or practising professional.

Reflective writing is thus more personal than other kinds of academic writing. We all think reflectively in everyday life, of course, but perhaps not to the same depth as that expected in good reflective writing at university level.
