Designing for reflection is becoming an increasingly important part of many HCI systems in a wide range of application domains. However, there is a gap in our understanding of how the process of reflection can be supported through technology. In fact, an implicit assumption in the majority of existing work is that, just by providing access to well-selected data, in-depth reflection can and will occur. To counter this view, we draw on Schön's notion of reflective practicum and apply it as a…

Revisiting Reflection in HCI
TLDR
This work constructed four design resources for reflection: temporal perspective, conversation, comparison and discovery, and identified design patterns in past digital artefacts that implement the resources.
The Development and Validation of the Technology-Supported Reflection Inventory
TLDR
The Technology-Supported Reflection Inventory (TSRI) is a scale that evaluates how effectively a system supports reflection, and enables researchers and practitioners to compare prototypes designed to support reflection.
In Search of Forms for Evocative and Generative Reflection: Exploratory Studies and a Design Proposal
TLDR
This study investigates a broader range of contexts and forms of self-reflection that support navigating one's mind and goals beyond achieving preset goals and proposes evocative and generative reflection as an alternative perspective to tracking-based, goal-oriented reflection.
Designing for Children's Reflections in Collaborative Interaction Mediated by Technology: A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
This systematic literature review focuses on children’s reflections within the collaborative practices in child-computer interaction research and investigates the link between reflection and collaborative activities, the types of collaborative technologies to scaffold reflection, and the methodological approaches to analyze reflection.
"A Game that Makes You Question...": Exploring the Role of Reflection for the Player Experience
TLDR
An interview study explored when instances of reflection occurred, at what level players reflected on their gaming experience, as well as their reactions, revealing that many players considered reflection to be a worthwhile activity in itself, highlighting its significance for the player experience beyond moment-to-moment gameplay.
Enabling Critical Self-Reflection through Roleplay with Chimeria: Grayscale
TLDR
The results of the study indicate that Chimeria:Grayscale, the interactive narrative created by operationalizing the system design methodology, enabled the study participants to critically self-reflect.
Everyday Life Reflection: Exploring Media Interaction with Balance, Cogito & Dott
TLDR
This paper explores media-supported reflection through the design and deployment of three concepts, and finds that the open-ended systems primarily supported reflection during the creation of media and that the use depended on opportunity and triggers.
Sensitizing Scenarios: Sensitizing Designer Teams to Theory
TLDR
This work reports on the experiences using role-play scenarios as a way to sensitize heterogeneous designer teams to complex theoretical concepts related to museology as social and cultural phenomena.
Design (Not) Lost in Translation: A Case Study of an Intimate-Space Socially Assistive “Robot” for Emotion Regulation
TLDR
This research explored the role of language and identity in the formation of identity and the role that language plays in the development of individuals and the stories they tell.
Unobtrusively Enhancing Reflection-in-Action of Teachers through Spatially Distributed Ambient Information
TLDR
ClassBeacons is evaluated, a system that uses spatially distributed lamps to depict teachers' ongoing performance on how they have divided their time and attention over students in the classroom to contribute empirical knowledge about how an HCI system enhanced teachers' process of RiA as well as a set of design principles for unobtrusively supporting RiA.

Reflective Informatics: Conceptual Dimensions for Designing Technologies of Reflection
TLDR
This paper reviewing and engaging with conceptual and theoretical models of reflection, organized by the disciplinary and epistemological perspectives each embodies, identifies three dimensions of reflection: breakdown, inquiry, and transformation that serve as the foundation for reflective informatics.
Reflecting on reflection: framing a design landscape
TLDR
This work synthesizes literature on the topic of 'reflection' into a framework, consisting of aspects such as purposes of reflection, conditions for reflection and levels of reflection (where the levels capture the behaviours and activities associated with reflection).
Designing for reflection on personal experience
Reviewing reflection: on the use of reflection in interactive system design
TLDR
A review of research on systems designed to support reflection finds that most work in this area does not actually define the concept of reflection and that most evaluations do not focus on reflection per se rather but on some other outcome arguably linked to reflection.
How we think : a restatement of the relation of reflective thinking to the educative process
I. What Is the Concrete? The maxim enjoined upon teachers, “ proceed from the concrete to the abstract/' is familiar rather than wholly intelligible. Few who read and hear it gain a clear concep­
Reflective design
TLDR
Reflective design combines analysis of the ways in which technologies reflect and perpetuate unconscious cultural assumptions, with design, building, and evaluation of new computing devices that reflect alternative possibilities.

On Becoming a Counsellor: Challenges and Opportunities to Support Interpersonal Skills Training
TLDR
This research explores the learning processes of counselling students, for whom developing interpersonal skills forms a fundamental part of their university education, and highlights the complexity of interpersonal reflection as a crucial process for developing counselling skills.
Designing Social and Emotional Skills Training: The Challenges and Opportunities for Technology Support
TLDR
It is argued how the shared challenges across existing curricula that digital technology might help address: the support for out-of-session learning, scaffolding for parental engagement, and feedback for the curricula developers presents an opportunity for mutually beneficial collaborations.
