Writing a reflection
When reflecting on your learning you might address the following questions:
- Description – What is the concept, idea or theory you are reflecting on?
- Analysis – Are there aspects you found particularly interesting or challenging? Does it tie in with anything you have learned in the past? Has it changed the way you think, or affirmed something you already knew?
- Outcomes or Action – What else might you need to find out? Do you have any questions? How might you incorporate or apply these ideas in the future, perhaps in your professional life?
- Whether reflecting on an experience, on your own learning, or both, you will need to make sure you include description, analysis and outcomes or action.
