Module 3 - explaining your professional inquiry - final thinking and writing phases - the professional artefact

In they campus session we had Kim in person and Claire on Skype.

We talked about where people were in their work - mainly finished gathering data but with a few interviews to conclude (sound familiar).

You have probably started you critical review - Intro and Evaluation - and are now writing up the analysis - so what does it all mean? have you used the expertise of others to think about your own experience and what others have said when you talked to them? Have you done something with your new knowledge and understanding? a workshop? changed your own practice?

The Analysis section and the critical reflection often merge a bit - so your as a professional and the personal gains/experiences are related.

the artefact - best advice - don't overcomplicate but make it real 

what have you found out?
how can you share this in your community of practice or your workplace?
who is your main audience?

this can be a work- in - progress or it can be something you can present to others in your professional capacity... like many creative works - the earlier stages of planning are important to communicate the main ideas of what you are doing - but your artefact might still require permission to be made public (if you are working in a particular organisation) or like a funding document - we could see a draft that is to be submitted to an arts organisation... it does not mean incomplete - but is in a stage that may not be completely final but showing all the ideas and images that will go into a final artefact. If you can complete the artefact please do so...

work in progress

n. pl.  works in progress
1. yet incomplete artistic, theatrical, or musical work, often made available for public viewing or listening.
2. One, such as an inexperienced athlete, who has not yet reached his or her peak potential.

not sure about the second one - the first one - yes if needed 

Who is your audience for this explanation/ interpretation of your work?

There are some good examples of artefact on the archived blogs in no particular order...

a blast from the past from Rosemary
