Nevertheless, reflection is key to student learning. Reflection is not just a way of making formal learning explicit but also a lifelong skill that can be applied to a range of situations. Importantly, within design education, these reflection skills are vital in building capacity for reflective practice, preparing graduates for professional design practice. The project proposes to further develop the students’ digital and critical literacies by focussing on reflexive practice skills (e.g. reflective practice that applies learning to future scenarios).
