What is a reflection?
How successful has this IDU been?
Activity One - Write
Your task is to write a reflection on the 'Relationships in Time and Space' - historical fiction IDU. It is good to know what you have learnt from this process and whether it has been beneficial to work with two departments.
- 45 minutes to write it
- Approximately 300 words - this is only a guideline and you can write more.
