Abstract

This research surveys students to investigate the use of reflective learning journals in a Studio environment. Over 220 students were approached in order to discover the current process used for creating journal entries, along with any constraints that prevented them from producing meaningful content. Students were then prompted to suggest an alternative method that may overcome these problems. The results indicated that the pitfalls of the current system severely hindered reflective processes. This led to the recommendation of a web-based application that addressed student concerns, along with any potential hazards that a revised approach may deliver. The features of the proposed system provide a stronger focus on reflective learning via the implementation of journal templates and raising awareness of retrospective thought processes.
