Reflections in learning

Reflection is an integral part of experiential education. To truly get the benefits from experiential learning, students need to actively reflect on their experience to understand not only what they learned, but how they learned it. This process improves student’s problem-solving skills, as well as their ability to self-regulate their learning and manage their time.
