A critical part of talking 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 understanding
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.
