Reflective writing is Writing which involves ' consideration of the larger context, the meaning, and the implications of an experience or action'
Used to analyze and examine an event, memory, or observation. The writer reflects on the meaning and impact of the occasion.
Reflective writing gives the writer insights and can lead to further learning. It is like rewinding your life to a past event and then thinking about how is affected your life, what you could have done differently to change the outcome, or what came out of the event.
Reflection is a mental process. It is contemplation or a long consideration. Unlike a reflection in a mirror, it in as interpretation of what is going on between learning and thinking.

*Understanding the Concept of RWReflective writing is thus more personal than other kinds of academic writing.
Reflection is an exploration and an explanation of events not just a description of them.
RW is based on description and analysis of a learning experiences within the coursea past experiencea critical incident
*Conceptual Structure of Reflective Writing
1. DescriptionWhat happened? What is being examined?2. InterpretationWhat is most important /interesting / useful /relevant about the object, event or idea?How can it be explained e.g. with theory? How is it similar to and different from others?3. OutcomeWhat have I learned from this?What does this mean for my future?
*Why RW? To consolidate the theoretical understanding
To conceptualize the learning in the training situation against the realities of the work situations
