Welcome to our journaling guide library
Our guides help you how to use journaling for your learning. The Goal Guides can be used individually or be integrated into courses. The Course and Programme Guides are developed specifically to be integrated into an academic programme. Feel free to use these guides (CC BY-NC license), or contact us if you need help designing your own course or programme guide.
What’s your goal? Our journaling guides can help you to make progress! Each guide provides fun, science-based prompts that help you work on a specific goal, and they only take a few minutes out of your day.
We’re constantly working on new guides to expand our library. Do you have an idea for a new guide? Contact us!
