Review of #MANG2049 Live Session 14th November

We reminded you not to forget the final task of the module which asks you to reflect on how your own digital profile has developed over the course of the past two weeks. To do this effectively, you will need to refer back to your Self Test, and gather specific evidence to support your discussion of the ways in which your activities/behaviour have changed, and what you plan to focus on in terms of your learning and/or career development going forwards.
