Reflection in Higher Education (Moon, 2005)

I woke early with some neat idea that related Moon (2005) on reflection in H.E. to effort and some student being upset about wanting all her ‘effort’ to count … it hadn’t.

I sketched a mini-knowledge map thingey, made coffee, then … well, 90 minutes later I have read all forum entries and nudged two tasks forward, as well as reading all ‘fringe’ forums and followed a long-standing promise to comment on fellow students’ blogs (some, not all) and I’ve done this. So I have at least mentioned what I had on my mind when I stirred into consciousness.

I have the following to work with:

  • Effort/Counts
  • Libertine
  • Resourceful
  • Indulgent
  • Personalised
  • Tutor Guided
  • Course Guided
  • Self-guided
  • Thorough.

As playing with toys is more fun than work I may do one of several things:

Doodle on my Mind Map (its on cartridge paper in a sketch pad so it invites embellishment)

Stick it on or in Compendium (which would be like using a chain-saw to prune back the stunted lavender at the front of the house)

or have a go with …


Thanks for that Lesley. It took me less than 20 seconds to pick this out of our week one forum.

Oh the joys of playing in the OU sandpit.
