Second Session F2F – CESL Program 26 – 28 April 2018


I am coming back to UNJ for the second session Face to Face CESL (Certificate in Educational Studies in Leadership). It has been a pleasure and feel lucky that I can join this program and meet many remarkable people in it. I learnt many things from my colleagues.

In the morning we meet Mr Lim, he is the head of the HEAD foundation. We did some conversation and chat with the head and rescheduling our F2F for the third session on June. The HEAD Foundation just want to make sure that our visit to Singapore is worth a while and we can learn a lot from them. They want to make sure also that School in Singapore is ready to accept us.

In this session our mentor Dr Vicente Reyes explained about how do we have to explain about our project based on research qualitative and quantitative. He gave us many example that we can apply or analyse, what’s going on with the school.

  • Reflection-in-Action
  • Reflection-on-Action
  • Reflective Practice

These are some note that I jot down during Mr Vicente presentation:

On August : Show Case with UQ

Each of us will present our project and critical friends.
