Reflection is an essential component of process by which students learn through experience.
“Reflection is a key component of students’ experiential learning.
Defined as a cognitive process which requires active engagement on the part of the individual, reflection involves examining one’s responses, beliefs, and premises in light of the situation at hand.
The intention of reflection is to integrate new understanding into one’s experience.” (Rogers, 2001)
