Reflection of personal professional development

Extracts from this document...


Task 3: From looking at the key influences on my personal learning and development, I identified and explained how and why six key influences affect my learning. These key influences were: time, friends, aspirations, employment, lifestyle and motivation. My personal learning and development may help to benefit others, such as service users, peer group, friends and family for a number of reasons, whether it benefits the groups in the present or future. My peer group could benefit from my personal learning process because I would be able to provide feedback from my experiences and any new skills or information I had gained I would be able to give guidance and pass on to my peers. Service Users would be able to benefit from my learning process because any mistakes I made I would be able to learn from them for the future. As I personally developed I would be able to provide service users with the knowledge they are safe and that I was well practiced and capable of carrying out required tasks by them. ...read more.


My peer group would also benefit from my learning process as I would be able to provide feedback on the ability to complete tasks better next time; I would be able to offer provisional planning on advancing both my learning process and theirs. This refers to Kolb's learning theory, stage four - abstract conceptualisation. When reviewing Kolb's learning theory stages, you can see how every individual learning process fits the stages. For example: Concrete Experience This is the 'doing stage' where you participate in an action(s). You are providing personal care to a service user when you accidently roll them over too quickly and they pass a bowel movement. Reflective Observation The stage in which you personally reflect on the concrete experience. After the experience, you think about how and why the service user passed a bowel movement. Abstract Conceptualisation This is the decision and planning stage where the information gained from the experience is analysed and understood. ...read more.


Family and friends benefit majorly from your personal learning process because they see you develop and as learn. The development could be personal attributes becoming stronger or knowledge being increased. Motivation can be passed from my own personal learning process to peers, friends and family. As my learning process broadens, groups around me would be motivated to increase their learning ability in order to develop themselves. As I have discussed and explained in this report you can see that from my personal learning process I am able to pass on motivation, skills, information, advice and guidance, knowledge, experiences, feedback, methods and plans of actions to my peers. I am able to pass on confidence, knowledge of safety, experience, information and plans of action to service users. I am also able to pass on personal attributes, information, knowledge, skills advice and motivation to my friends and family through the outcomes of my personal learning process. Whether any of the factors discussed in this report affect peers, service users, family and friends, now or in the future, they are all able to learn from me as I am able to learn from them. ...read more.
