The chord chart shows the connection in blog posts between domains. For example, my blog posts cross both Affective and Cognitive domains fourteen times. Procedural and Interpersonal domains only cross three times.

In Week 5, I noticed my critical reflective journal was distributed unevenly. The affective domain was a small fraction compared to the other four domains. While I have now explored my feelings and experiences in the Affective domain, the Procedural domain is now my smallest number of posts.

The Procedural domain encompasses learning by doing and failing. Rapid Ideation 1 and 2 were a huge part of the module, spanning four weeks of work and four long blog posts. I feel this may account for a smaller number of posts under the Procedural domain.


  • Smart – Continue to reflect on all five refective domains for Game Development
  • Measurable – Continue to blog about my academic journey
  • Attainable – A post once a week
  • Relevant – Continuing reflective practice will improve my development, writing and I will be able to revisit my journal
  • Time-bound – Throughout Indie Games Development
