4 The preparation phase
In the preparation phase you should pause before starting a new section of work and think about it as a whole. What needs to be covered? What are the various components of this block of work? What are the learning objectives or outcomes? What will you need to know and be able to do at the end of it? What is required in the assignment?
There are two main activities during this phase, both directly related to your course work and assignment:
- analysing the task
- making a plan.
