The Gibbs Reflective Cycle

Decent Essays
Taking this module highlighted what my weaknesses are when presenting. However, the main weakness I found was not looking at the audience when presenting as it shows a lack of confidence in what you are saying which may lose the interest of the audience (O'Donnell 2016).

If I could do the presentation again I would stop my bad habits such as clicking the pen and put my hands in my pockets as it distracts the audience from the message I am are trying to get across. If I had to start this module again I would try and get more involved with the group projects and try to present something to the class at the end of every lesson. I feel that I need to learn about how to present to a larger crowd or attend some professional training to further improve and enhance my presenting skills so I am more comfortable while presenting. The next time I am presenting I can use the Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle (1988) so I can continuously critic my presentations which will help me especially in the workplace as it will help me pitch an idea of mine or presenting myself in an interview to show why I am suited for a job
