Abstract

Reflection and reflection activities are potentially valuable components of the instructional experiences educators design in order to support student learning. Published scholarship contains many allusions to students having reactions to reflection activities, but the nature of these reactions are rarely engaged in depth. In this work, we focus on four complications we have encountered while developing a survey to explore student reactions to reflection activities, and potential implications of these complications for educators and researchers.
