6 Summary and reflection
The activity below encourages you to reflect further on the session. Take some time to go through this, before moving on.
Activity 11 Reflecting on Session 6
- Based on what you have learned in Session 5, either create a mind map or write a reflective journal entry on ONE of the following topics: ‘Using social media tools for research’ or ‘How to avoid plagiarism’ or ‘Communicating and collaborating online’.
- Use your mind map to reflect on the topic and identify any areas that you are unsure of, or think you should develop further.
Take a look at the digital and information literacy skills checklist that you completed in Session 5, and assess your level of confidence in the following areas: (1) understanding and engaging in digital practice, (2) finding information, (3) using information, and (4) creating information. Now go back to your academic and professional skills checklist from Session 1 and look at how you assessed your ability in the ‘academic and information literacy’ domains. If you think that you are now at a higher level of understanding than your initial estimate, then mark this down on the form.
