Replacement of traditional sketchbook reflective journal with reflective blogs to improve the quality and maintenance of the reflective process

In my current organization I observed that the reflective process by traditional sketchbook was not very effective method of reflecting. Reflective journal by reflective blog is the new and emerging trend and has been proven to be effective in other areas of teaching.

This study was conducted to compare reflective process by using traditional sketchbook reflective journal and reflective blog. A group of 20 students used reflective blog for one week in 2D sessions and then they used sketchbook reflective journal for one week in 4D sessions.

The results were assessed based on learning outcome set by UAL. Our results show that the reflective blog group achieved better outcomes in comparison to sketchbook reflective journal. Students also displayed a preference towards using reflective blog as a method of reflection in future.
