Many students in Higher Education (HE) struggle with the concept of reflective practice, hence they do not engage well with the process and its full value is seldom realised. Using a simple software system developed to facilitate and structure the recording, storage and retrieval of reflections, students were able to monitor their development, resulting in improved metacognition. Students reported feeling empowered and perceived their learning had been enhanced since using the system.
