Exploring the assessment
Track and Record Your Learning
As this course is based around self discovery learning, it would be helpful to think about how you will keep track of this learning.
Some people find a learning journal or a personal learning record useful for this.
The form that this takes is entirely up to you. Some people prefer to keep a written record which may be a word document or perhaps you may wish to use a blog and encourage some feedback from others, some may prefer a research notebook or to use voice or video recordings.
- If you need more ideas or information click on the attached study skills advice sheet on learning journals.
Depending upon the format that you use to record your learning you can use excerpts from this as evidence in your portfolio.
Discussion Boards on Moodle
Formally enrolled learners can use these discussion boards to share their thinking and their learning
Look for the section entitled Online Discussions - this contains both topic discussions and frequently asked questions
