How was your year? For me, it was an extremely busy and at the same time an exceptionally satisfying one.
Yet another session comes to an end. Yet another eventful year, full of achievements and challenges, is going to be over. This is the right time to reflect on the time gone by and learn from our mistakes and accomplishments. This end gives way to a new beginning. Beginning of yet another year. A year full of hopes and aspirations. A year full of dreams and ambitions.
As the academic session 2017-18 is coming to a closure, I have been thinking about reflections. We often reflect after a big project to see what worked well and what didn’t, to inform our future plans. But why do we always forget that ‘WE’are the biggest project we will ever work on?
Reflections help us to assess how we’ve done things, what the result was, and whether we’ll carry on as-is or change direction to achieve what we really want. You might review your goals frequently but it’s also important to take a step back and look at the bigger picture to see how far you’ve really come. So taking out time to reflect on the episodes of our life is an essential exercise too.
Did you put a lot of work into something, but didn’t get very far? Have things actually gone wrong for you? Just have a feeling you could be doing something better, but unsure where to start from? Decide on the objective of reflection and start your work from there. Reflecting back will help you develop higher order thinking skills and will make you more equipped to handle problems. It will provide you with the skills to mentally process learning experiences, identify what you learned, modify your understanding based on new information and experiences, and apply this learning to other situations.
Reflection is an integral part of the learning process. It allows us to learn more about ourselves and how we learn and aids us in improving our performance. When a sports team watches the recording of the previous night’s game, they’re able to easily identify their mistakes and correct them by practicing. Looking at a failed math test can have the same result if we realize “Oh! I forgot to carry the one every time I borrow!” We too need to practice reflection in order to be better versions of our own selves. John Dewey, a psychologist and an educational reformer, once said,
“We don’t learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.”
