Learning Diary (1000 words)
A Learning Diary is a means of tracking your development, with an emphasis on unstructured informal activities. The main idea is that from writing up what we consider to be significant work based learning experiences that occur in the form of everyday incidents, the likelihood of actually doing things better in the future will be increased. In this way learning ceases to be a haphazard and accidental process and becomes more structured, reflective and conscious.
Reflective Essay (2000 words)
On completion of the placement and the journal, a written report (2000 words) should be completed which provides a critical evaluation of the work experience. The report should include a description of the placement and provide evidence of reference to relevant texts, journal and research
The reassessment task is the same as the assessment task for this module. Students who have previously submitted work may resubmit the learning diary and appendices with or without amendments, but the reflective essay must be substantively different to any work previously submitted.
