  1. PE-courseProject Organised Learning (POL)5: P0-experience exchange Master of Science – Introductory Semester (E7 + M7 – Intro) Lecturer: Lars Peter Jensen Ass. teacher: Xiangyun Du E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  2. PE-courseProject Organised Learning (POL)2: P0-experience exchange Learning outcome: After this lesson you should be able to • Explain how reflection can be used as a tool for learning, • Formulate good advice for the coming P1-project period, • Describe what a process analysis is. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  3. P0-experience exchange Programme 8.15: Lecture I: On reflection and learning 8.40: P0-experience exchange i cross- groups 10.45: Poster presentation 11.30: Lecture II: On the P0- process analysis E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  4. Lecture I: On reflection and learning • WHAT is reflection? • WHY use reflection? • HOW to reflect? • Introduction to cross-group work E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  5. WHAT is reflection? Examples of reflection: A student is reflecting when: • She notices that important information is missing in a text, thinks about possible reasons for leaving out the info and looks up the info in other places. • She realises that the given math exercise is different from the standard exercises in the book, identifies the difference and knows what to do differently. • He looks back at an overruled time plan, identifies the time-consuming activities and makes allowances for these kinds of activities in the next time schedule. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  6. WHAT is reflection NOT? Examples of lack of reflection: A student is NOT reflecting when: • He inserts numbers in a given formula and calculates a result without understanding the context • She re-formulates an explanation and passes it on without having understood it herself • He describes the time schedule for the P0-project without noticing and commenting on the mismatch between planned and realised time consumption. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  7. WHAT is reflection? Oxford English Dictionary The action, on the part of surfaces, of throwing back light or heat (rays, beams, etc.) falling upon them; But also • The action of turning (back) or fixing the thoughts on some subject; meditation, deep or serious consideration. From the examples: • Notice • Think about • Look back at • Identify • Plan based on experience E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  8. WHY use reflection? Engineers of today need methodological competencies, such as: Flexibility and capacity for change. Such competencies are closely connected with ’lifelong learning’ which can be achieved through awareness about learning processes. Awareness about learning processes can be achieved through reflection upon learning processes. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  9. HOW to reflect? Make conscious observations by asking questions: WHAT went well in P0? … and WHY did it go well? WHAT went wrong in P0? and WHY did it go wrong? The reflection is embedded in the WHY? questions Reflection as a tool for development and improvement of methodological competencies can be used in connection with learning processes within all areas of engineering but in the POL course we focus upon learning processes in the area of project organised group work. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  10. Introduction to cross-group work • Start out with a round of presentation, giving name, P0-project topic and supervisor • Do a series of rounds describing how your project group organised the following: Project management, team work, co-operation with your supervisor. • Do a series of rounds of analysing and assessing your project process, taking your point of departure in the questions: WHAT went well in P0? … and WHY did it go well? WHAT went wrong in P0? and WHY did it go wrong? E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  11. Introduction to cross-group work (cont.) 4. From the answers to the above questions generalise in the following format: • What we will continue to do in P1 • What we will do differently and better in P1 • What we will not do again • Give ’Good advice’ to yourself and your fellow students (and possibly also to your supervisors) aimed at improving the project work process in P1 • Write down the ’Good advice’ as a poster on flip-chart paper. The poster you should put up for presentation in room B2-109. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  12. …and now the cross-group work! At 10:45 the poster presentation starts – please select one member from each cross group to present your poster. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  13. Lecture II: On P0-process analysis • A little theory on reflection and learning. • WHAT is a process analysis? • WHY write a process analysis? • HOW to write a process analysis? E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  14. Theory on reflection – Kolb’s learning cycle Experience Test Reflection Generalisation The P0 project has given you some experience. You analyse your experience through reflection. By asking what and how to do better you generalise in the form of ’Good Advice’ which can be tested in P1 and give you new experience. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  15. WHAT is a process analysis? • A process analysis is a description, an analysis and an assessment of your project work process. • The P0-process analysis contains 3 topics: • Project management • Team work • Co-operation with your supervisor E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  16. WHY write a process analysis? • In order to write the P0-process analysis you have to reflect upon your learning processes … • Which takes us back to the reasoning conc. the relationship between reflection and lifelong learning etc. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  17. HOW to write a process analysis? The process is similar to what you have just been doing in the cross groups, except that you now do it in your project group. • Start by describing your expectations to the P0-project • Then describe your P0-project work process, incl.: • Project management • Team work • Co-operation with your supervisor If you feel that other points have been important in your work process as well, you should include them also …. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  18. HOW to write a process analysis? (cont.) 3. After description of the process you continue with analysis and assessment by answering the questions: • WHAT went well in P0? … and WHY did it go well? • WHAT went wrong in P0? and WHY did it go wrong? • To which extent were our expectations fulfilled? E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  19. HOW to write a process analysis? (cont.) 4. From the answers to the above questions generalise in the following format: • What we will continue to do in P1 • What we will do differently and better in P1 • What we will not do again • Conclude the process analysis by giving ’Good advice’ to yourself and your fellow students (and possibly also to your supervisors) aimed at improving the project work process in P1. The cross group experience should have broadened your insight and understanding about different ways of organising project work. E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  20. A few tricks conc. process analysis • Describe before you analyse and assess. • If disagreeing upon good/bad experiences, write the different opinions rather than spending time on trying to reach consensus. • The ‘Good advice’ for P1 must be operational rather than nice but vague intentions. Read more on: http://www.control.auc.dk/~lpj/POL/Analysing%20the%20working%20Process The process analysis should be no more than 5 A4-pages, excl. attachments. Relevant attachments could be for example: Time schedule, Collaboration agreement etc. Please send a copy to Xiangyun by e-mail: xiangyun@plan.aau.dk E7 + M7 Intro - E06

  21. … and now: have an enjoyable time writing your P0-process analysis E7 + M7 Intro - E06
