Reflective entry: Reflective assessment
Each week you are expected to write a reflective entry (2-3 paragraphs, max 400 words). This will be done in your own time. The reflective assessment is intended to help you consider, reflect upon, and learn from previous week’s lectures or the topic that your lecturer sets.
It is very important that you use proper grammar and language in your reflections. You can use the questions below as a diving board to leap from a murky pool into a clear pool of thought but do not simply answer one of the below questions – that is not what we are looking for.
Reflections should be snapshots filled with sights, sounds, smells, concerns, insights, doubts, fears, and critical questions about issues, people, and, most importantly, yourself.
A reflection is not a work log of tasks, events, times and dates.
Use complete sentences to express your thoughts. Make sure to include specific examples that support your reflection. Feel free to link to relevant videos, or websites that add to your reflection but referencing is not essential but may be helpful to your tutor for background.
Directions your Reflection could go in:
What was most memorable or stands out in your mind about class this week?
What was the most surprising and/or unexpected idea expressed in this week’s discussion?
For you, what interesting questions remain unanswered about this week’s topic(s)?
In your opinion, what was the most useful idea discussed in class this week?
What example or illustration cited in this week’s class could you relate to the most?
What did you perceive to be the major purpose or objective of this week’s class?
What do you think was the most important point or central concept communicated during this week’s presentation?
What relationship did you see between this week’s topic and other topics previously covered in this lecture class?
What was discussed in class this week that seemed to connect with what you are learning or have learned in other course(s)?
