Writing Success: Reflective Journals

In this workshop, you will discuss what reflection is and why students are asked to write reflective journals in university. You will also explore the typical expectations associated with reflective journals and their language features. Comparisons between reflective journals and other types of academic writing will be made and sample reflective journals will be evaluated. Students who attend will be much more aware of this specific genre of writing, which is different than traditional academic writing.
