1. Introduction
The purpose of this PDP module is helping people gain the personal, academic, reflective and professional skills. In this report, I am going to reflect on what I have learnt and I need to improve. In academic area my strongest skills are note-taking, referencing and information skills. However, in presentation skills, academic writing and learning skills are the area that I still need improving. In career-related skills, I am good at self-management, adaptability and team-working. On contrary, I still need to learn how to manage time efficiently, budgeting and communication well.

In my opinion, this is a very useful skill that I still need to practice again and again to improve it.
* Information skills
I used to search for information from Google engine and many unknown websites. However, I found that the results are not always tend to be academic after I take e-lessons. As a result, I may not get good result because my writing is not academic. After taking the E-lesson from PDP last term, I was taught how to get the resources I want from the student library quickly and successfully. Now, I can use Summon, Database and Mintel to get the useful information to help me with my coursework. Those are pretty helpful, and I can get access to the online resources freely and that is also I feel very interesting.
Three skills needing improvement:
* Presentation skills
Different from last term, we already had lot presentations in different modules. I found that I made much improvement as E-lessons give me many guides , but I still behave not very well in both of them, which made me feel really upset during that time. For purpose to overcome my fearless, I asked many friends and teachers to help me to improve it. As a consequence, I noticed that I may get nervous in front of people. At that time I decide to have more and more practice to let me be more familiar with the resources that I am going to talk and be more confident to myself( Castro,R, Yolanda. 2011). So I study hard in this term and improve my English speaking fast. I think that I need more presentations allow me to practice and improve this skill, I will keep working on it.
* Academic writing
In term one’s study, we found that academic writing is a pretty essential skills in our academic study life. As for me, in term one, I always skipped to make a framework and organise my mind before I begin to write. As a result, what I wrote is very confusing and I cannot get a very good result in my report. As I try to change this circumstance, I turned to my teachers and friends for help. It seems like I improved a lot that I can make framework each time in the beginning and ask teacher to proof read for me. I need to keep working on that and practice to learn more about academic writing.
* Learning skills
During term one, I found it really hard for me to focus on teacher in the whole class. At that time, my mind would fly to somewhere else during the class, so I cannot grab the useful information from teacher. But in term 2, I feel it becomes easier as I adopt the way I learned from PDP last term that how to get great learning skills. I would grab my pens in my hand and look at teacher’s face to concentrate on them. Moreover, I would do the preview and review to make it easier for me to understand and I would not feel bored when I do not understand what teacher say. Every skill need to practice, earning skills as well. Although now I still feel that I need to chase after other students, but I will never give up.
