Module two was entitled The Development of Professional Practice. For this summer project, it was always going to be difficult to obtain ‘real live’ subjects for interviews, so I completed a literature review instead.
I have always been interested in how we can support international students better, and my research focused on this, not from my own research but ‘standing on the shoulders of others’. The research was fascinating in a completely new area, and I really developed my critical voice.
The feedback this time was much shorter, and was more concerned with the need to clarify a couple of different terms (constructivism v constructionism for example). Changes this time were minor, and I resubmitted whilst on holiday in the South of France and celebrating my fortieth birthday.
The result? – 62%
