5 Reflection

This week has involved quite a bit of thinking about qualities, skills and knowledge, with a focus on those that may be useful for future study. Make sure you have a summary of your own positive qualities, transferable skills and range of knowledge in your learning journal. Remember that skills are something you can get better at so, if you find some that you feel should be labelled ‘for future development’, that’s fine – jot these down too.

Don’t be too hard on yourself, but do try to be as realistic as you can. Put question marks by things if you are not sure. When you start planning your learning future – in the later parts of this course – you will find it useful to refer back to these.
