I sometimes think we're too zoned in on immediacy these days.
Your post resonates with me.
I think, given the speed of the communication tools available, we sometimes expect too quick of a turnaround time for learners to reflect on learned content and to then document those reflections for others to see.
As I see it, reflection is an unstructured process influenced by numerous and unpredictable factors.
Scheduling a deadline for 'reflections' to be posted (for example) often results in hasty and top-of-mind responses -- which are certainly valuable but certainly not what I would call reflection.
In fact, I propose that the speed to document and display often kills the creative aspect of reflection and can lead to less-well-thought-out final conclusions.
