"One of the most challenging aspects of reflection is to ensure that one grounds description in specific evidence."

Eynon B., et al., (2014)

COURSE REFLECTION

This course was extremely challenging for me. I would not trade the experience for anything. It taught me grit. It taught me I can learning anything. Though I cried my way through most of the class, the experience, the instructor, and the knowledge and experience gained are irreplaceable. 

Though I may seldom use the knowledge gained to inform my practice unless I return to the field of data.  The topics of assessment, correlation and understanding quantitative analytics and the major influence data has on practice is critical and necessary to have at least a basic understanding of.
