On the use of reflective writing in an introductory photonics course

Paper Abstract

Reflective writing is often used to promote self-regulated learning amongst students. While its benefits are well documented, there is a need for research on the impact of reflective writing in engineering education (Clark and Dickerson, 2019). We describe the implementation and examine the impact of two types of reflective writing exercises⎯an exam wrapper and self-evaluation⎯in an introductory photonics course.
