Follow–up on An introduction to skills development and the Warwick Skills Portfolio

Here's a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points

  1. To commit myself to completing the further workshops and applying what I learn to my everyday life

    I have just completed a second workshop and look forward to applying myself to further ones in the near future. I have found them to be compelling, practical and important to maintaining and developing the skills I need to bring to my Masters study and work life. I hope to complete the necessary workshops for this award by the beginning of next term.

  2. To apply the skills and techniques highlighted in situations outside my comfort zone and become more flexible and adaptable

    I have applied the ideal learning situations I discovered from this workshop to my recent studies. Making sure I put the theory into context, relating it back to examples which illustrate the bigger picture. This has helped to improve my overall learning and understanding. Plus, I have tried to be more spontaneous and flexible in my approach to group work which has stretched me and helped to encourage my creative side.

  3. To improve my self reflection by listening to feedback from others and use of structured self assessment

    Recently I have applied most of my reflection to my personal life and this has helped to highlight and overcome some of my insecurities. Most important to me is the feedback from others. This has been of particular help in my academics, in particular, my presentation skills which have been moved forward as a result of well structured and insightful comments.
