Why Reflection Matters and How Sketchnoting Helps

While taking time to reflect on our work is crucial for continuous professional development, the busyness of life often throws a wrench in those good intentions. Traditional reflection methods can feel like staring at a blank page, a tedious chore that gets forgotten about and pushed aside.

Enter sketchnoting! This method injects a spark of creativity and engagement into the review process. By incorporating visuals alongside key points, you can efficiently synthesize information and gain deeper insights from your experiences. This isn’t just about fun – the act of drawing activates different parts of the brain, making reflection more enjoyable and ultimately more effective.
