Feedback and reflection give you an opportunity to learn from what you have done in order to understand how you might improve in the future.
Why is it important?
Feedback on your work, both written and spoken, will give you guidance on how you can improve your next piece of work. By taking a wider perspective, you will be able to recognise your progress, gain confidence, and learn how to ensure the desired outcome next time.
How do I do it?
There are several useful models that guide the reflective progress. The common aspect to all of them is going beyond description to ask questions, to inquire into why something happened the way it did, looking critically at your own role, and evaluating how you might change your behaviour in the future.
