  1. Consult the resources on reflective writing above for ideas and examples of learning reflections.
  2. Think about the reasons we teach and its relationship to sharing knowledge freely. Revisit your prior experience and knowledge of the topic you are writing about and consider how and why you think the way you do.
  3. Think about WHAT you have learned but also HOW you learned it
  4. Think about your response or reaction to the new knowledge and insights derived from the course materials you have studied and websites you visited during this learning sequence.
