Assignment Sample on PLIMS Personal Development Plan


A personal development plan is prepared by a learner to further hone learning skills and excel in University (Grit, et al., 2019). I will prepare such a plan based on issues associated with a particular event during my PMILSC module.

Event description:

The event has occurred during the middle of the PMILSC module which is focused on interactive learning skills and communication for PG study. In week 3 of the module, our lecturer talked about the aspects and significance of academic listening. For me, it is a totally new concept and also I am still not effective at academic listening. The event especially is about my lack of understanding in this area even though I tried to follow up with few classmates, it did not benefit me. On the other hand, it felt anxious about its outcome.

Problem areas:

During the particular segment, the processor mentioned academic listening consists of crucial listening ability, oral communication and academic learning skills. But, my issues or problem areas are lack of ability to evaluate information while listening, inability to organise information during a class as I could not capture the relationships between ideas and concepts that are being presented and also I could not predict information. Due to such a problem area, I am still struggling to be a better student. In addition to that, I learned that once I become better at academic listening, I will be able to take effective notes in an academic context and can follow the process to create and deliver an effective presentation.

Action plan:

An action plan refers to a detailed plan that covers actions needed to reach one or more goals (Wain, 2017).
