I am fascinated by the way that writers have used journals and diaries in the past. Personal and learning journals and reflective writing techniques form the foundation for many of the classes I teach at undergrad and postgrad level, including our module in Life Writing, part of the BA English Studies with Creative Writing at Teesside. I'm currently beginning an exciting new research project at Teesside, which looks at the ways that learning and reflective journals are used across our courses and programmes. More info on this to follow soon, or drop me an email if you'd like to chat about this.
I'd love to hear from you.
