Reflective Writing Assignment:
Building on the content in your group’s wiki – create a concept map relating learning theories in adult education to a facilitative model. In addition, write a 500 word reflection on your understanding of facilitation and how this understanding impacts on your work in the future.
Your main or key concept should be easily identified as your chosen facilitative model and sub-concepts – describing learning theories - should branch appropriately from main idea to a complexity of at least four (4) concept levels (sub-concepts). Graphically describe the relationships between your chosen learning theories in relation to facilitation. Use the map to connect concepts and facts (nodes) and to demonstrate
relationships between concepts – i.e. between facilitation and theories of learning
Your map should contain appropriate descriptive links between nodes (short phrases or specific/descriptive words describing the relationship between concepts). Do not repeatedly reuse the same link; construct a variety of links that describe the unique relationship between specific nodes and include specific examples that clarify the meaning of a given concept. Include cross-links which demonstrate the complexity of the relationships.
In your reflective commentary provide a description and reflection of the development of the concept map. Do not simply describe the map. Consider how undertaking this assessment task has impacted on your understanding of what facilitation is and means to you in your practice. Consider how the development of this assessment task has impacted on your understanding of facilitation and theories of learning. Include a reference list and a bibliography if appropriate, relating to the concept map. You may create your concept map using concept mapping software but you must save and submit as a jpeg or pdf.
You may hand draw your concept map, take a photograph and upload as a jpeg.
