Abstract: Studies have outlined postsecondary students’ lack engagement in reflective learning. However, factors affecting students’ engagement has not been studied from the perspective of students. This study examined barriers of reflective learning as perceived by students and instructors in a large university in Western Canada. Data were collected from 32 instructors and 161 students through interview and open-ended questionnaire respectively. A qualitative analysis of the data showed four main categories of barriers: emotional, instructional, personal, and structural and contextual barriers. Although instructors and students perceived some common barriers in each category, the findings also showed important differences in the type of instructional and personal barriers.
