Yesterday I submitted my latest M.Ed assignment: RPD: Literature Review [Google Doc]
It is part of a Reflective Professional Development module. We were required to submit:
A literature review of 3 – 5 books, articles or papers which have influenced your practice or understanding and have helped to shape you as a professional.
Each of the texts I chose to include made me sit up and reconsider both my values and beliefs about education as well as informing my approach to teaching and learning in the classroom.
The texts are as follows:
- Belshaw, Doug (2011) Student attendance in the digital age, JISC Inform, Issue 31, Retrieved, January 2012 from the World Wide Web on: http://www.jisc.ac.uk/inform/inform31/DougBelshaw.html
