As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m required to keep a reflective journal for a course that I’m currently taking. Of course, because I’ve been told to do it, I’ve not made any blog posts since. I seem to like to blog if it’s a voluntary activity, but I don’t like it if I’m told to keep a journal.
Anyway…let’s reflect. I attended my action learning group meeting today. I had done some preparation for it because I realise that even though I don’t like the format of the meetings I should be professional about it; prepare, contribute and learn. I’m not sure how much I learned, but I’ll give it some time.
My next job is to finish the learning pack that I’m working on. It’s on assessment which is something that I need to improve at. However, after reading the referenced chapters and websites I don’t think I’ve picked up anything that Des hasn’t ranted about. I seem to be able to pick up more from my collegues in a shorter space of time than from spending time reading.
So apart from not liking the format of the meetings (I periodically transition from feeling angry at being told to sit somewhere for several hours like a child to being really angry that I’m being put in some pseudo-therapy [unfortunatly not the uber-cool rock group Therapy?]) and not getting a high return on investement from the study packs it’s all going well
