AbstractThis paper by Liz Lakin from the University of Cumbria forms part of the ESCalate Help Directory for Teacher Educators and is part of the Research Papers from the Teacher Educator Community series. - This paper reports on the initial outcomes of an exercise with secondary students in the conceptual development year of their undergraduate or post graduate training. Students were asked to use a focussed learning log to assist with their studies. - The key aims of this research project are to present opportunities for students to: appreciate and take an active role in the learning process; be critical, reflective thinkers able to identify gaps in their own subject knowledge & understanding and to identify how they can ‘fill’ those gaps; inform their teaching and their pupil’s learning.
