5 Summary

Well done – you are already half-way through Succeed with learning! This week you have looked at the importance of reflection and gaining feedback in order to increase your understanding of yourself and your capabilities.

You have learned about:

  • the importance of ordering your notes
  • what is meant by the term ‘reflection’
  • reflective practitioners
  • Sigmund Freud’s ideas about the unconscious mind
  • different kinds of feedback; such as 360° feedback, the ‘empty chair’ technique and the Johari Window.

Next week, the course focuses on some more technical skills – providing you with a practical tool kit for your future studying.

You are now half way through the course. The Open University would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future improvement in our optional end-of-course survey [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , which you will also have an opportunity to complete at the end of Week 8. Participation will be completely confidential and we will not pass on your details to others.

You can now go to Week 5.
