I’ve talked before in our courses about the usefulness of learner diaries to track development and identify key milestones in knowledge acquisition. However, there are some great benefits in trainers using dairies as part of their own self-review. A trainer diary can help you to reflect on what happens in the classroom. It can act as a snap-shot in time, which reminds you of what you have done. It also provides a means of recording key behaviours and reactions of students as they happen.
