Students do not necessarily learn from an experience, particularly if they do not think about it or do not take responsibility for it. Reflective learning is a mechanism to address this issue and has been demonstrated to aide in the development of critical thinking, self-awareness and analytical skills, all critical to engineering education. This paper presents the experiences of the authors in incorporating reflections into a range of analytical engineering courses, from undergraduate to graduate level. The reflections target specific activities as well as reflecting on the whole-course experience.
