What is a learning journal?
A learning journal is a collection of notes, observations, thoughts and other relevant materials built‐up over a period of time and maybe a result of a period of study.
Its purpose is to enhance your learning through the process of writing and thinking about your learning experiences.
Your learning journal is personal to you and will reflect your personality, preferences and experiences.
Why use a learning journal?
To provide a “live” picture of your growing understanding of a subject experience
To demonstrate how your learning is developing
To keep a record of your thoughts and ideas throughout your experiences
To help you identify your strengths, areas for improvement and preferences in learning
A learning journal helps you to be reflective about your learning, this mean that your journal should not be a purely descriptive account of what you did but an opportunity to communicate your thinking process: how and why you did what you did, and what you know think about what you did.
