This paper outlines the development of a reflective processthrough which student feelings are brought to the surface to advance theirlearning outcomes. A key notion in relation to the capacity of studentdevelopment is the ability of students to alter their collective habits ofthought and in turn the nature of the learning environment. The paperexamines student reflection in the context of students' heightenedawareness of self and their potential influence on their environment. Thenotion of 'surfacing feelings' is used to describe the outcome of individualand group reflection through which several parties become aware of theactive reflections of individual students, thereby increasing the potentialdepth of overall reflection. Finally, the author considers the transferabilityof the ideas discussed to other educational contexts.
