Commentary on my blog entry titled 'My learning style'

Two months after my blog entry I am reviewing how well it identified reflective practice and issues such as learning from experience. Another so called 'self-assessment' exercise which hopefully will help me to gain productive results from my learning. This exercise is mainly based on the commentary produced at the end of 'the presentation' class activity conducted in the WSC CM1 workshop.

When i look back on this entry I feel there are some features of reflective practice that emerge quite strongly. I believe that the entry recognises how prior experiences and thought processes resulted in a miserable and below par first year experience in university. Additionally, there is some evidence to suggest that the author has learnt from others experience and developed an own framework in internalising these experiences. Additionally, the writer has stood back from the experience and made this reflective entry.

However, looking back in retrospect I feel the entry has been very weak in some features of reflective practice. The entry does not take others opinions into account and is written from my own perspective. Additionally, the entry fails to mention how the transition happened and what was done to make the second year experience much better than the first. The absence of this clearly affects how future learning through experience coud be achieved as as no reference is made. Furthermore, the absence of an internal dialogue where different views of my own experience are explored is a major flaw in this entry.

Based on this evaluation i feel that the reflective entry on my learning style was not very good. Specifically, i would classify it in the lines of how the reflective account B was written which shows some reflection. Based on this self-assessment I believe I would need to work on the major flaws mentioned above in order to gain a better learning experience and also effective reflective practice.
