Learning Goals Reflection

Learning Goals identified in Output Plan Reflection & Re-design
To be able to use CAD to produce professional designs/ This process has revealed to be massively more involved than initial thoughts and has now become the focus of output 4.
To undertake surveying techniques with confidence & accuracy & to be able to produce accurate drawings Achieved via field mapping exercises. 
 To improve research skills & data collection Achieved via all the research undertaken for the output, this has also been re-designed for output 5.
To internalize the permaculture design process  Definitely achieved, very empowered by this output process!
To enhance my knowledge of permaculture & land use   Definitely achieved, has been a real process of working through 3 years of learning. Empowering to realise what I know but also overwhelming in exposing how much there is to learn!
To expand my website design skills  Not really achieved however another website design can be added to my portfolio, useful plugins have been found.
To improve my knowledge of horticulture  Has been achieved through my research & design notes however it has not been stretched as it may be in the near future while completing more detailed design work.
To improve my species identification skills  Definitely achieved via creating the PASTE lists.

Output Process Reflection Summary

What I have gained through this output process:

Personal: Massive sense of achievement, have definitely experienced an internalising of the  design process, feel closer to mum & Ian, feel I am making our long term ambitious vision tangible and achievable. Personal productivity enhanced.

Professional: Hopefully impressive body of design work uploaded online including for my Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design portfolio.

Project: Design decisions made, implementation plan created, Brook End website.

What went well: Depth of the design process, productivity.


What was challenging: balancing computer work with garden work, processing the sheer volume of information for this output report.


Do differently: design more balanced indoor/outdoor tasks
