I would like to make this a bit longer...but the stomach flu running rampant in my household is going to make it a bit difficult.
I've found this journal both useful and challenging, at various times during the semester. As I got deeper into the research for my lit review and final project, there were more things swirling through my head and this became a great space for reflection. I also appreciated how my reading this semester dovetailed between my two classes--I am also taking the learning commons class with Loertscher. Although I didn't write as much about the overlap, I did think about it a fair amount.
I think that I will keep a research journal again in the future if I have a big project such as the literature review and final proposal again.
