|Session 8 - Towards a globalised child welfare|
Exercise 1 - back to the beginning
There are three parts to this exercise:
Part 1 - reviewing progress against the learning outcomes for the course
We now invite you to rank these outcomes according to what extent at this point in time you feel each outcome has been achieved for you personally.
You might want to share some of the process, particularly 1-3 below with another student or group of colleagues.
Now you have looked at your experience in relation to the general outcome for the course you are invited to do the same for the goals you set yourself in session one in Activity 1.2 - Personal Audit. In this you used a five point scale below:
You should have a printout of the gaols you set yourself for each area using this scale. If so, put these in the left side column. Put a five point score in the right column. This provides a measure of your progress.
Your reflections and self-assessment are intended primarily to assist you in identifying what the course had provided for you and how you can take this in to your practice.
It can also be interesting to compare and share your learning with others, particularly if you have been in quite an isolated position whilst taking the course.
The final part of this exercise invites you to draw together a short summary of your course experience to be shared in a discussion forum with other. How you do this will depend on your course provider's interactive facilities.
Undertaking programmes of study inevitably generates some ups and downs and it is fine to share some of the aspects or impact of the course that have felt less than positive.
You might want to continue a dialogue with course peers or others in your own country and beyond its borders. Many of the web sites cited in this course have options for subscribing to news or discussion forums. Two other electronic professional networks include:
