REFLECTIVE ASSESSMENT TASKS

Why reflect?

...To make connections between

  • theory and practice
  • past knowledge and new knowledge
  • concepts and evidence
  • the literature and personal experience
  • beliefs and observations
  • thoughts and feelings
  • you and other students
  • you and academic staff.

...To fully engage with the assignment: to formulate, simplify, evaluate and reframe ideas, test a theory, make comparisons.
