Abstract

Reflective learning refers to the concept-manipulating and knowledge-integrating process toward complete understanding. A new blog tool was designed to support students’ reflective process. Besides blogging, students could attach up to five keywords to each blog, and then link the keywords on a concept map on a blog site. This exploratory study aimed to examine student contribution patterns and experiences that aided or hindered students’ practice of reflective learning on the site. Nine graduate students participated in the interview. This presentation describes the research design, and presents findings and implications for future research and practice.
