Just some quick thoughts about Reflective Diaries, or artists note books or learning logs, there are many names for them (and they maybe a little different from each other) but I think the most important thing about them is that they help you find a place to put your thoughts and ideas so. A place to put you. I found the recommended reading - Jennifer Moon, Learning Journals - really helpful.
As I said in the induction day I now number the pages of my Reflective Diary so that I can refer back to it. As you start the year it is really good to start making a little bit of time to write and capture your thoughts and experiences.
