Follow–up on Getting started on skills development and the Warwick Skills Portfolio

Workshop Tutor: Amanda Randall

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

  1. Academic skills

    Improving on my academic skills is a major action point. I believe knowledge is endless and the more you can gain the better. Thus to gain better skills i have made an action plan that every week i'll read a new book issued from the library from any genre. This will help me broaden my horizons in all directions and i wont particularly be a person who just has the knowledge of science and maths. My aim now is to make the most of my time at warwick and its library and learn the most out of it in all possible directions.

  2. Priorities tasks

    I have noticed that prioritising things in the way it should be completed gets your task half done. The month of November saw a rise in the number of assignments and tests and submissions. Thus planning things in the way it should be completed one after the other thus helped me successfully to complete and submit my assignments on time.

  3. Self promote

    Leadership skills i believe is something that opens you up. Hence recently we had a MATLAB exam and i had done MATLAB in my undergraduate studies. Hence i got an opportunity to self promote myself in front of my friends and teach them from scratch. Thus it was a very interesting time i had while teaching everyone and thus we got to know each other better since then.

  4. Being Motivated

    I have noticed that one of the most significant action points that i should set for myself is being motivated because over here i am all alone without my family members and friends and hence some times it becomes to morally and emotionally demotivating to spend an entire day thinking about your past life and the times you had back home. Hence this is a key action point for me!

    Hi Fahad,

    I apologise for missing this blog post from last term. I am pleased that you have now made a record of specific actions that you have carried out, and tried to reflect on how you felt about this. What, specifically have you tried to do to motivate yourself, under your fourth action point?

    The WSPA blog should be about reflection i.e. it is somewhere where you can reflect on how well (or not so well) things went, following your actions, and what impact this will have on how you will tackle things in future. I have seen that Ceri has written a similar comment on your blog for A4. Do consider what we have each suggested and try to make you next blog a more reflective one.

    Best wishes
