Reflection Of Learning Throughout The Foundation Of Higher Education Study Skills
Using appropriate literature I will be analysing and evaluating on what I have learnt throughout the module of combined studies. In this piece of writing I will focus the knowledge and personal experience gained at this module.

In additional, the online discussion became very handy when we were preparing for the poster or group wiki. This was a group effort as all the students contributed the best ideas they had at the end, although some took time and resulted other member to be stuck and be un able to make decision for all, as the whole groups ideas and opinion were counted. This is supported by (ref). Eventually the group managed to organised and put together all suggestions and produce healthy poster or group wiki with all the task requirement.
