Reflective piece is designed to allow you the opportunity to consider your skills, learning and professional practice. You should reflect on a concrete experience, which may be one of the class activities and/or an experience at work or elsewhere in university.
In order to complete this assessment effectively, you will need to do the following:
- Reflect on a concrete experience. Keep the description to a minimum, but instead you should be focusing on what you have learnt, what went well/badly, what you could have done differently and why etc.
- Analyse your experience in light of the academic material covered in class and in your wider reading. Support your arguments with high quality academic sources.
- Use your analysis to ‘think forward’, and consider what you will now do in light of this reflection. You should produce clear action points that apply the principles of SMART.
REMEMBER THAT A REFLECTIVE WRITING STYLE IS DIFFERENT FROM AN ACADEMIC WRITING STYLE. However reflective writing is still scholarly writing; you must use evidence and argument to support your points. Your writing must be authoritative and informative, however it is appropriate (in fact preferred) to write in the first person (eg. I, me, my etc).
