Maximise your learning
This virtual study tour does not hand you all the information on a plate! You need to be an active learner.
If you feel there is too much information, carefully select and record what you need. If you feel you are not getting the information you want, be pro-active, ask questions, post comments and work to find the information you want.
Interact with your tour buddy and participate in the online focus group discussions. This will help you digest and analyse what you read, see and hear during the tour.
We also recommend you do the following:
Take lots of notes.
Bookmark sections that you want to return to for further reflection.
Do not just accept everything you see and hear. Not everything will be good.
If you see or hear something you think is good, write it down – and make a note of why you think it is good. Try to make a note of whether this good thing could be done in your own context, or how you could adapt it.
Likewise, if you hear or see something you think is not good practice, think about why and think about a solution, or how you could avoid such a problem in your own context.
Use your analyses to stimulate discussions with your buddy and the focus group sessions.
Keep a reflective journal throughout the tour. This template may help you record and think about what you see or hear each time you log into the tour or interact with other participants, the facilitators or your buddy.
