On the Mental Health and Wellbeing page we suggested you might want to start keeping a personal journal, in what ever format takes your fancy.
Now we ask you to think about academic learning reflective journals.
You might have found over these past few months, that even when the day might drag, time can pass very quickly. Most of us forget things, or don't remember them quiet as accurately as we think we do as time passes.
Academic journals are becoming quite common practice in learning and teaching. You might be asked to maintain a reflective journal as part of your module requirements. Sometimes this is just for you, or you might share with your tutor, or you might be able to choose who else you share it with.
Keeping a reflective log/journal of your own learning journey is also a useful, and often enjoyable, thing to do as well and by the time you are ready to collect your degree you can look back at this journey through your journal.
Most schools will be using Collaborate as a virtual classroom to support blended learning activities in their programmes and modules.
Collaborate is delivered through the University's virtual learning environment (VLE), My Dundee, delivered by Blackboard.
