Reflective Writing through the Use of Guiding Questions
Moussa-Inaty, Jase
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v27 n1 p104-113 2015
Reflections can be seen as powerful tools for growth and intellectual development. It is no surprise that the writing of reflections is common practice at a Federal Institute in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The research presented sought to explore possible differences in reflective writing once guidelines were presented to a group of interns in the College of Education. Text analysis of written work samples were used to determine possible differences in reflective writing. Results showed that most students preferred to use the guiding question while writing their reflections. There was also a significant improvement in the quality of written reflections after reflection guiding questions were presented and used. This study contributes to the knowledge base of reflective writing of Emirati students and emphasizes the importance of support in the form of guiding questions. Educational implications and future research direction are also discussed.
