Preparing a topic

Are you preparing topics for your exams?  Are you taking information from lots of places such as your notes, Moodle, books, online journals, websites, reports etc?

The Learning Development section of The University of Plymouth have devised an excellent model to help us think critically about such topics.

They encourage us to think about topics in 3 categories:
(1) Describe them: what? -- when? -- who? -- where?
(2) Analyse them: why? -- how?
(3) Evaluate them: what if? -- so what? -- what next?
