Three-step reflective framework for electronic portfolios

This is part of my Doctorate in Education thesis research. http://bronwynhegarty.blogspot.com/

Hegarty three-step reflective framework 2005 - some rights reserved

The idea is to encourage reflective writing using a template so that users step through three steps of reflection - 1. Take notice and describe the experience - what you know, think feel, need, decisions; 2. analyse the experience - why the actions and decisions, reactions, 3. Take action - what learned and how will you use it - goals.

This framework is used with a template with prompts to create evidence for electronic portfolios.
