Reflective Writing

Some advice for reflective writing

Writing reflectively is a process that needs time to develop and improve.

This video from the University of Hull gives some good advice, but it is not explicitly for CAS.

The DIEP model for reflective writing stands for:

D - Describe

I - Interpret

E - Evaluate

P - Plan for the future

The following video by the University of Melbourne explains this model and shows that reflection is valued beyond school.

Gibbs Reflective Cycle

Another way of structuring the reflective process is by using the Gibbs reflective cycle. This video from Expert Program Management is job-based!

Reflection is a lifelong skill.
