This paper outlines the development of a reflective process
through which student feelings are brought to the surface to advance their
learning outcomes. A key notion in relation to the capacity of student
development is the ability of students to alter their collective habits of
thought and in turn the nature of the learning environment. The paper
examines student reflection in the context of students' heightened
awareness of self and their potential influence on their environment. The
notion of 'surfacing feelings' is used to describe the outcome of individual
and group reflection through which several parties become aware of the
active reflections of individual students, thereby increasing the potential
depth of overall reflection. Finally, the author considers the transferability
of the ideas discussed to other educational contexts.
