Through reading over unit 3 of the online modules my understanding of what it means to write reflectively has definitely improved. Previously when I considered the word ‘reflection’, I thought it to solely mean ‘to look back on’. I hadn’t contemplated the idea that when writing essays, it has a heavier meaning.
However, I now feel that I understand the importance of identifying where it was that I went wrong and how to increase my understanding of any given topic when reflecting. I appreciate the significance of understanding feedback and how to apply it in the future. In the past I have found it difficult to fully accept critical feedback when I’ve put 100% effort into a piece of work. However as I gain more experience and practice, I welcome that this is a huge part of learning and developing both as a person and a professional.
