Editor A. Ross & P. Cunningham, Reflecting on Identities: Research, Practice and Innovation  
Age group -  
The article presents narrative and reflective research about the reflective ways in which students construct their subjectivity and identity. During the educational and research process students participated in many pedagogical activities and events (workshops, dramas, discussions and debates, psychological games, interactive lectures) which help them experience reflective self-cognition, self-understanding, using reflectivity as an instrument of conscious constructing their identity. The main question students searched for an answer was “who I am?”. It was also a theme of reflective essays analyzed by the author trying to discover various ways young adults build their identity as complex, “multiple choice” construct.
