Integrates perfectly with your curriculum.

With Rflect, you can integrate reflective practice into any higher education program, such as a Bachelor’s, Master’s, Certificate of Advanced Studies and other academic programs within minutes. We help you tailor the guided reflection plan to suit your learning outcomes.

1. Your students’ progress at a glance

Get real-time insights into how your students are doing and their skills' development for informed decision-making. This can help reduce costs for external accreditation and assurance of learning processes.

2. Guided reflection

Empower students with tailored reflection questions to deepen their understanding of program experiences and their own personal development. Rflect helps them to set personalized learning goals and train future competences like self-awareness, critical thinking and meta-cognition.

3. Student self-assessment

Students complete evidence-based self-assessment surveys to identify the competences they want to learn and build on during their learning journey. Inspired by the Inner Development Goals framework, these surveys empower students to shape their learning journey effectively.

4. From reflection to action

Rflect bridges reflection with action, offering students a structured pathway to translate personal insights into tangible steps. This facilitates the completion of the learning cycle, boosting student engagement and motivation.

“Rflect is giving us a scalable and cost effective way to help our students develop essential human and future skills.”

Dr. Rachel Brooks Head of Executive Education CSI - University of St. Gallen

Our Mission

We started Rflect because we believe that inner development is key to achieving sustainable development, and that students genuinely deserve better. Simply put, we are convinced that more reflection leads to better outcomes for both people and the planet. Our mission is to enable universities to equip their students with a lifelong habit of inner development. We understand this goal is ambitious, and we take pride in that ambition. Our motivation comes from the vision of bringing inner development to 200 million tertiary students worldwide and supporting universities in redefining their pivotal role in society.
