This Special Issue will comprise a selection of papers addressing “Reflective Learning in Higher Education”. The Sustainability journal seeks papers addressing the development of both reflective teaching and learning in higher education to promote sustainable education. Papers from all disciplines, (i.e., not only education, psychology, social sciences, sciences, nursing, and engineering disciplines, but also from multidisciplinary studies) where reflection is at the core sustainable development, are welcome.
Papers may explore reflection within higher education and/or on practice in higher education, not only as in-house and external individuals and collective initiatives and activities, that focus on reflection and the generation of knowledge, but also on the transformation outputs of the learning communities. Emphasis on both reflective practices and communities and linking reflective learning and the development of professional identity through reflection are also welcome.
Papers may also address the connections between theoretical and applied research on reflective practices, knowledge generation in all areas, professional practice and identity, through theoretical definition, situated and grounded practice, and transformative knowledge.
