What is a reflection journal?

Journal writing is unstructured and personalized writing and key component of experiential learning.

Look at yourself as an experiential learner. You are a participant and observer. As a participant, you promote your own growth. As an observer, you look at what is going on around you.

A well-written journal is a tool that helps you practice the quick movements back and forth from your environment to abstract generalizations of thoughts, emotions, feelings and actions.
