Week 40: FMP-Workshop2

by wangtianchen

This week, we had our second workshop on Wednesday morning with our tutor Andy. The purpose of the workshop is help us with the 500 words reflective writing and informs the 1 minute reflective film that is one of our assessed outcomes.

Reflective writing is used to analyze and examine an event, memory, or observation. The writer reflects on the meaning and impact of the occasion. [1]

In terms our FMP reflects writing, it is looking back at our process of projects. How we arrived at our topic/ final project? Discuses the process of doing my final project and how could my project better or improve? Moreover, there are many ways to record the process of project. Such as reflect diary, journal plan, sketch notes, storyboard and digital journal. We can try different ways to make the process.
