Reviewing the course and your professional development

Summary of the course.

We’d like you to spend some time now to review your understanding of curriculum design. This will help you identify changes in your practice and thinking, and help you plan where you need to go next.

  • Look back over your notes, contributions to course discussions
  • Review your completed reflection grids that you have accumulated during the course.
  • Compare your self-audit tasks from the start of the course and here.

The second self-audit task will help you reflect and record your professional development on this course.

Use your copy of your responses to the first self-audit task to identify what areas of practice you still need to focus on and which sections of the course you should take time to revisit. You may also identify where you will be taking ideas from the course further with your colleagues.


  1. Access the self-audit task and complete it.
  2. At the end of the survey, click My responses.
  3. Click Download as PDF.
  4. Save the PDF as a record of your professional development.
In the next step we have provided suggestions for further professional development and additional resources to support assessment of students’ thinking in science.
