  • RefleXen

    RefleXen er et online-tidsskrift med bidrag fra studerende på uddannelser ved Institut for Læring og Filosofi.

    RefleXen præsenterer nogle af de problemstillinger, som de studerende er optaget af og arbejder med i deres studie. Artiklerne kan derfor enten være skrevet med henblik på at give en mere generel redegørelse for et projektarbejdes samlede resultater, eller der kan være tale om en mere detaljeret gennemgang af et delaspekt af et projekt. Det kan også være et spørgsmål om, at man har fundet en afledt problemstilling så interessant, at den måtte undersøges nærmere. Artiklerne er således udtryk for, hvad de studerende har fundet relevant og interessant at formidle til en bredere målgruppe.

    Arbejdet med publicering af artikler i RefleXen skal give studerende øvelse i at formidle faglige problemstillinger til andre målgrupper end de vanlige aktører i en uddannelsessammenhæng, samt at kunne gøre det via internettet. Derudover ligger der også et ønske om at bidrage til videndeling ud over uddannelsens rammer, således at de studerendes arbejde kan inspirere relevante målgrupper, og ad den vej føre til fornyet refleksion over egen praksis, eller generelt vække nysgerrighed inden for området.

    RefleXen udkommer 1-2 gange årligt – god læselyst!
