The 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 students perceptions of different occurrences. IRPL - Feeling
IRPL - Application The 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.
IRPL - Evidence The 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
