A critical part of taking steps toward change is representing learning along the way. This is a deliberate process that calls for reflecting upon your own understandings before, during, and after key experiences, and documenting how these understandings change. While there are numerous ways to represent learning, we suggest using a journal. As the workshops progress, pay particular attention to changes in your thinking, and the implications of these changes, and record them in your journal.
