Net Generation undergraduate medical students often have low engagement with reflective learning because it does not match their learning preferences. In our survey of all first-year students, the main learning preferences were bodily-kinaesthetic and interpersonal. Those students with the highest scores in their written reflective learning assessment generally had linguistic and interpersonal learning preferences. We suggest that all educators consider how reflective learning is implemented in the curriculum and recommend further research to determine if our findings are generalizable.
