What is a Reflective Online Journal? PDF

[Full Text]

A reflective online journal is a way of thinking in a critical and analytical way about your work in progress. It shows how different aspects of your work interconnect.

The online journal can record:

  • where your inspiration comes from
  • how you make use of your ideas to develop your work
  • your awareness of the cultural context (setting) in which you work

This context includes: other practitioner’s work and their ideas; the ideas of critics and theorists; social, political, aesthetic and ideological contexts.

The online journal could include:

  • research notes
  • personal comments on your own work
  • notes/images from visits
  • quotes
  • extracts from lectures, tutorials, books, journals
  • photos/sketches
