Reflective blog questions


Your blog entries do not have to be just written, you can use photos, photos of your sketch book, or videos of yourself talking.

You might find the following questions useful to help you get started. You don't have to answer all these questions but they will help you to think about not just what you did but also who you are when you are doing it.

What was the best thing I did? Why was this the best thing I did? How do I know that this was the best thing I did?

What worked least well for me? Why did this not work well for me? What have I learned about the topic concerned from this not having worked well for me? What have I learned about myself from this not having worked well for me? What do I plan to do differently in future as a result of my answers to the above questions?

With hindsight, how would I go about this activity differently if doing it again from scratch? To what extent will this activity influence the way I tackle anything similar in future?

What did I find the greatest challenge in doing this work? Why was this a challenge to me? To what extent do I feel I have met this challenge? What can I do to improve my performance when next meeting this particular sort of challenge?

What was the most boring or tedious part of doing this assignment for me? Can I see the point of doing these things? If not, how could the activity have been re-designed to be more stimulating and interesting for me?


Please don't treat this as an academic piece of writing, it must remain a very personal reflection, something that is useful for you in following your own learning.
