1 Leeds Metropolitan University Individual Reflective Profile LogRaising achievement, developing knowledge, focussing on understanding, capturing learning and above all, enhancing confidence: a process of learning and teaching to enhance students’ knowledge, skills and understanding.Planning for LearningDr. John ConnellLeeds Metropolitan University
3 AimThe main aim of the research is to ascertain the effectiveness of teaching and learning using a relatively simple means of assessment, the:‘Individual Reflective Profile Log’(IRPL).
4 ObjectivesOutline current literature utilising reflective practice as a tool for assessment and learning.The IRPL as a means of formative assessment.Methodology - Construction of the research design:QuestionnaireSemi structured interviews – individual and focus groupAnalysisFindingsNext steps

8 Methodology Construction of the research design: Questionnaire Semi structured interviews – individual and focus group
9 IRPL - FactThe students’ record in writing the presented information experienced in the lecture, this involved the fact (what was taught).Students we would expect to make notes on the lecture or even do follow up reading. Some do, the IRPL is a means by which the articulation of factual information is rewarded.
11 IRPL - FeelingThe students then have the opportunity to write their feelings (personal reflections) about what was taught. The recording of personal feelings can be quite private and there is a need to recognise this and the confidentiality attached to individual student’s perceptions of different occurrences.
13 IRPL - ApplicationThe application of what was taught in the lecture (how this information can be used in other situations). The application is also an opportunity for students to demonstrate their personal understanding of what was taught by suggesting ways in which they might apply the variety of themes to different teaching situations. The articulation of the students’ thoughts provides further opportunities to discuss the theory and practice of the lecture.
15 IRPL - EvidenceThe final section of the IRPL is the evidence (supporting work of other authors’ opinions). For students to fully engage in the theory and practice of the lecture and enhance the academic rigour attached to the work there is a need to support their beliefs with authored evidence. The importance of this section to the IRPL is the research, reading and referencing of supporting evidence
