So, where are we heading with this lesson?

Having a network of peers to share and collaborate with is a great part of demonstrating your passion for learning, as we mentioned in an earlier lesson. This lesson argues that to make the most of any learning we need to allow suitable time for reflecting on our learning experiences. We explore a few different reflection models, and you may well see just how we have applied one of them to this programme (the use of the what, so what, now what model is a big part of the workbook approach).

Talking of the workbook, as in other lessons, its interactive nature allows you to make notes. This time though, we’ll ask you to keep a reflective journal for at least a week and explore how this approach can help with reflection.

We also encourage you to take part in the community forums which provide the collaborative spaces for you to share your thinking and ideas valuable for others. The forums also enable you to gain wider understanding on the theme from people professionals working in different contexts.  The opportunity to see other contributors’ insights on their reflection will demonstrate that we all may hear one message, but our interpretation can be varied.
