Reflective Learning

Reflect and learn more.

Take responsibility for your learning and consider what you have learnt.

Reflecting helps you to

> become aware of your learning

> understand how you learn

> learn effectively

As an effective learner you need to develop your awareness of

> yourself as a learner

> the context in which you are learning

> the features of the subject you are studying

> he choices you make about your learning and their implications

> your performance and progress

Understand how you learn. Do you summarise or do you need lots of detailed information? Try using concept maps, this takes the pressure off the left side of your brain and lets the right side do some of the work.

Create a learning log. This will help you assess your learning in a structured way and assess your needs and progress.

Your learning log, could contain

> Your achievements

> Notes re: your strengths

> Notes re: our weaknesses

> Areas that need improvement

> Evidence - tutors comments

> To do list

Use checklists to monitor your own progress, this helps with revision, key learning points and also highlights your intended learning outcomes.

Reflect and know what you are trying to achieve.
