We illustrate how reflection is introduced into the teaching and learning of the human aspects of software engineering. We start with explaining the rationale for a reflective mode of thinking and its fitness to the field of software engineering. Then we outline in detail the agenda of a course that deals with human aspects of software engineering. It is suggested that the intertwining of a reflective mode of thinking into the education of software engineers in general and especially into a course that focuses on human aspects of software engineering enhance students' understanding of the essence of the discipline as well as their professional performance in the field.
