- It should focus on something that you have learnt throughout the course and demonstrate what you can do better now than what you could do before the course.
- It must demonstrate the breadth as well as the depth, of what you have learnt.
- It should provide good evidence of both evaluation and synthesis (Bloom, 1956).
- It should be based on the 'data' from your weekly learning journals, and possible insights you have had as a result of providing feedback on others' learning journals.
- It will probably focus on one or two major takeaways/insights. Maybe three, certainly not five. These are the things that have changed the way you think about business and changed your behaviour.
- The summarative summative journal shouldn't focus on being too personal about your experiences throughout the course, but instead focus on how you can apply your learning in the future.
