STEP 4: MONITORING MY PROGRESS
LET’S TAKE A STEP BACK AND CHECK YOUR PROGRESS
Once you have been out doing your learning, you will need to stop and check how you’re getting on.
After completing the planned set of tasks, you will want to take a retrospective look at your experiences to understand where you were successful and where you could make adjustments.
You will learn:
- What am I able to do now?
- What do I still need to get better at?
INITIATIVE & OWNERSHIP
- Understanding my limitations, my possibilities
- Taking responsibility for my own learning
- Finding driving questions and analogies
- Seeking input from others
ENGAGEMENT & MANAGEMENT
- Understanding my learning strategies and how they affect my learning
- Select & seek out resources available to me
- Check my own progress
MONITORING & ADAPTING
- How did my approach change what I did?
- Work on tasks with encouragement from others
- Adapting what I do for future learning
This step helps you keep track of what you are doing and how you feel and to self-evaluate and regulate based on this. This step develops your awareness about your learning, so you can adapt and adjust your strategies along the way. As you become acquainted with the processes, self-monitoring becomes more and more internalised, and something you start doing automatically. Once you have completed this step, you can go back to step 1 and create a new set of challenges.
