Reflection on Information Design Portfolio Brief
Time limit: 30 minutes
Remember to use your visual timer! We recommend the inventor’s iOS and Android apps — just search for “Time Timer” in the app store.
Evidence suggests* that reflecting on things we’ve just learned can help us to hold on to new knowledge, deepen our understanding, and increase our self-awareness.
* 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 information 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.
And that wraps up Part 6!
Our digital product design curriculum, which forms Parts 7–9 of the course, will be launching later this year. If you’d like to be notified when it’s ready, just email email@example.com.*
* Your email address will only be used to send a notification when Parts 7-9 are ready. It will then be removed from our records.
