Workshop Tutor: Samena Rashid
Throughout the workshop, I felt a friendly atmosphere, yet engaging attitudes from most members in group activities. The group activities were helpful as I was able to listen to many different angles of discussed issues such as reflection, skills and reflective experiences. The detailed definition and methods of reflective learning described in the workshop were considerably valuable to me. In addition, my expectation for information on other skills’ workshops and the Warwick Skills Portfolio Award was fulfilled. After that, the identification of skills that need improvements and learning styles contributed to my decisions in which workshops as well as what actions to take in the future. All in all, the workshop was beneficial.
Learn to fear less during a crisis situation. Next time a crisis or an unexpected event occurs, I will try to calm myself down and get engaged in solving the problem faster.
Be more spontaneous with my actions. I noticed it usually took a while for me to think and plan before taking any actions, somtimes the chance passes. In the next week, I will accept a friend’s invitation or request without thinking too much about the consequences of my actions.
Start keeping a learning log with reflective comments. I will keep a record of my new experiences with references obtain from friends or teachers and what I should do to improve myself.
