However it is now just past the 6th week - so really according to the below you should be finishing up your Part 2 reflection. Don't worry too much if you are not - many of the people on our course experience busy times at work which means that they might have been delayed on coursework…
The scheduling that is suggested in the handbook allows time for you to do your critical reflection after the three main parts to the module. Again, this module is about 'learning' using three main area that are of interest to professional practice.

I AM NOW COMMENTING ON YOUR BLOGS UP TO THIS POINT (some people are usually ahead of this timing).
We have one more campus session and one more Skype session - but of course you can continue talking to your peers on the blog or through LinkedIn or the sharing information.

Critical Reflection Duration of study time and feedback p. 28
It is possible to send a draft of your critical reflection to your adviser for feedback,
you can also ask others to comment on a draft on your blog to help you evaluate and
analyse your work. Send a digital draft to your adviser by Week 10 for written
feedback (in Week 12 oral feedback only).
Work is due to be submitted on the 13th May through MYLearning (Moodle) so you have plenty of time to left to doing more thinking about how the ideas introduced in the module relate to and maybe even affect your professional practice.
