* Reflection is a part of David Kolb’s influential model of the experiential learning cycle (1984, 2nd edition 2015). Jennifer Moon argues for reflective learning in professional development courses — see “Using reflective learning to improve the impact of short courses and workshops” (2004). A study by Robin Stark and Ulrike-Marie Krause suggests that reflection on learning positively impacts learning outcomes — see “Effects of reflection prompts on learning outcomes and learning behaviour in statistics education” (2009).
Complete a short reflection
Using paper and pen, a text document on your computer, or a voice note, put together a short reflection on the work you completed during the editorial design portfolio brief.
If you get stuck, or can’t think where to start, have a look back through your work and try to draw out the highlights, the difficulties, and any questions you still have.
