ABSTRACT
This paper considers how object-based learning (OBL) can be used to complement reflective skills development systems, which are commonplace in UK universities. It describes how some UCL students had difficulty understanding the concept of such a system and in choosing skills to develop. We therefore began developing a series of OBL activities, which could be used to help students understand how the system should be used and to identify their skill strengths and weaknesses.
