Example text

The aim is to encourage the progressive reconstruction of experience without imposing any restraints upon the student's choice of the content and manner of writing. The bulk of Abbs' book consists of extended extracts from students' work. The second example is a course called 'Education through Autobiography' in the Open University E200 series (Barnes, 1981). The aim of this course is to help students construct their own educational autobiography as an aid to understanding the range of experiences which contribute to an individual's development.

Some benefits of reflection may be lost if they are not linked to action. Although some of the outcomes are long term and often intangible, such as the appreciation of a work of art, others are more prosaic and can be consolidated by application. Application and action need not necessarily involve acts which can be observed by others. What is important is that the learner makes a commitment of some kind on the basis of his or her learning. What has been rehearsed must face the test of reality. Action ends the reflective process for the time being.

The aim is to illuminate the present and future rather than events of the past: an orientation similar to that of Abbs and the Open University course. We are . . less interested in autobiography as a record of a student's passage through schooling, as a souvenir of the trip, than as a source of energy and direction for the journey. (Pinar and Grumet, 1976, p111) Students are asked to write essays and diary entries, some of which are then subjected to critical analysis by peers or the teacher (the 'respondents') and are then rewritten with the student being encouraged to adopt a distancing technique in order to become a self-respondent.
