Reflect on your learning for this session and evaluate your skills development by completing Activity 5.

Activity 5 Reflecting on your learning and checking your skills development

Timing: Allow approximately 20 minutes

Create a mind map on the topic of ‘Academic writing at postgraduate level’ based on what you have learned in this session. Use your mind map to reflect on this topic and identify any areas that you are unsure of, or think you should develop further.

Refer to the academic and professional skills checklist which you completed in Session 1. Look at how you assessed your ability in the ‘reflective thinking’ and ‘academic writing’ domains. If you think that you are now at a higher level of understanding than your initial estimate, mark this down on the form.

Remember to review your progress at the end of each session, as you work through the course.
