reflection 2

Objective:

This assignment aims to encourage deep reflection on the topics covered during the week, foster critical thinking, and enable you to articulate questions and interests that may guide your learning journey further. This reflective exercise will help you understand and highlight areas for further exploration.

Structure:

Your reflection should be organized into three main sections, as outlined below. Each section should be clearly labeled in your submission. Aim for clarity and depth in your reflection, providing specific examples and insights from the week’s learning materials and discussions.

  1. Summary of Weekly Topics:
    • Begin by providing a concise overview of the topics covered during the week. Highlight key concepts, theories, or skills introduced, and briefly discuss their relevance to the course or your learning objectives. This section should be at most two paragraphs.
  2. Questions Arising:
    • Pose two questions that emerged for you based on the week’s topics. These questions are about something you found challenging to understand or reflect your curiosity to explore a topic in greater depth. Could you explain why each question is significant to you or the subject area? This is an opportunity to identify gaps in your understanding or areas for further learning.
  3. Topic of Interest:
    • Select one topic from the week that you found particularly interesting or engaging. Describe the topic in detail and explain why it captured your attention. Discuss how this topic relates to the broader course themes or your personal or professional interests. Reflect on how this topic might influence your perspective, skills, or future learning goals. This section should be the most reflective and detailed part of your assignment, demonstrating your engagement with the course material.

Format:

  • Your reflection should be submitted as a typed document, using a standard font (e.g., Times New Roman, 12-point), double-spaced, with 1-inch margins.
  • Include your name, the course title, and the date at the top of the first page.
  • Your reflection should be between 500 and 750 words in total.
  • Before submission, could you proofread your reflection for clarity, grammar, and spelling?
