In your Final Reflection (approx 250 words) you should revisit and reflect upon your inquiry questions in the Initial Post and upon the questions you asked along the way in the Expert Searching post/s. You should reflect on the changes in your understanding in relation to the initial post. You should pose new questions that have been prompted by your final reflection.

You should compare your own search to Carol Kuhlthau’s Information Search Process (ISP).  How does your experience compare to the ISP? Did you undergo the same stages? In this post do not simply reproduce the stages, but represent them in relation to your experience.

You can see an example of how one previous student has approached their final reflection here. This student was using the metaphor of the Tour de France throughout her inquiry journey. She chose to use the KWL framework for her reflection. This is not necessary; how you present the reflection is up to you! The only requirement is that you compare your own search to the phases identified in the ISP by Carol Kulthau (which she did through the post).
