Personal Case Study, Development Practice



It’s the final week of our first module: Development Practice. We were asked to analyse & reflect on our learning journey so far in a concise presentation to support this critical reflective journal. In this video I reflect on my motivations for starting the course, my key learnings and challenges along the way as well as the areas of study I’d like to deepen going forward. This week I also completed a written review of the module, which involves consolidating my SMART goals and personal reading list for the upcoming module.

My video Transcript can be found here.
