Throughout the studies on this unit I was asked to keep notes (c. 150 – 200 words) on each textbook reading and journal article that was set for lecture reading,
workshop reading or essay preparation. These notes should provide an overview of the material read, its meaning, what you learned from it (what was new to you or used
in a way which was used in a different way to that which you had experienced in the past). The notes should also provide an overview of specific issues for which you
require greater explanation or clarity. If any of these questions have been answered the notes should include the answers that you have found. These notes, together
with your initial submission that you submitted in October will form your reflective portfolio.
1. Title with where it is cited (and page/ chapter number) as header.
2. Outline key points of interest
3. Key learning you have accessed through the reading (what you have learnt from it)
4. Key issues for which you need further clarification (what difficulties you faced)
5. Word limit between minimum 135 words to maximum 220 words
In total there are 10 sections that you will need to submit. These are listed below:
