Abstract:

This paper discusses the question of how to assess academic discourse on reflection from a dialogical point of view. The starting point of this research was Schön’s well-known ‘reflection-in-action’ model, which was expanded to include aspects of discursive analysis. A corpus of two sets of reflexive reports (26 in total) was analyzed along four analytical dimensions: self-reference, modality, meta-discourse and domains of reflection. These dimensions were subsequently subdivided into 13 variables. Statistical analysis of these variables resulted in the construction of five different modes of reflection, two of which highly correlate with an independent rating of perceived ‘good reflection’. This research gives evidence for the proposition that there are sensible patterns to be discovered in reflective writing, and that these patterns provide insights into the narrative styles used by the authors of reflection reports.

Keywords: Self-relexivity; dialogical viewpoint; discourse on reflection; modes of reflection; reflective practice
