CNA151 Assessment 3b
Hint Sheet for the Reflective Paper (1000 words; 30% weighting)
The aim of this exercise is for you to reflect on three aspects of the group work activity:
• Reflect on your experience working within a team in terms of what worked well and what
could be improved (30% weighting);
• Reflect on how this process enhanced your learning of health promotion principles and
practice (30% weighting);
• Reflect on your professional development as an emerging nurse, or graduate in your chosen
field (30% weighting); and
• Academic writing style (10% weighting).
Writing your reflection:
• Reflective writing style
o less formal than academic writing but complete sentences and paragraphs are
expected and colloquial language is to be avoided
o Proper referencing using Harvard is necessary
o Personal pronouns are used (write in the first person). For example, “I’, “we”
o Personal and subjective comments are common. For example, “I think”, “I believe”,
“I feel”
• Tenses
o Past tense – recounting what happened
o Present tense – general comments, relating your reflection to theories and topics
covered in your course
o Future tense – how the experience has changed you, how this information will be
useful to you
• Headings
o Use headings – it will help to ensure you follow the stages of the reflective cycle in
the correct order
o Headings are not included in your word count
• References:
o It is not expected that you will use references in relation to your personal
reflections. Reflective writing is more personal in its tone than academic. However,
when you reach the “so what” and “now what” stages, you might refer to theory
about group work or working in teams or on the process of reflection in which case
you will need to use references.
• Using a model for reflection:
You will find it easier to write your reflection if you apply a model for reflection. This will help you to
guide your thinking and reflection on the aspects of the required aspects of the health promotion
project. Information about Driscoll’s model has been provided for you here as a guide for the
Driscoll’s Model of Reflection:
Driscoll’s Model of Reflection (Driscoll, 1994) will encourage you to think about what happened, the
impact or meaning of what happened and to establish an action plan for dealing with similar
situations in the future.
Describe objectively the tasks undertaken and processes followed for health promotion practice.
• Happened in your words?
• Did you see? Did you do?
• Was your reaction?
• Did other group members do?
• Do you see as key aspects of this situation?
Analyse the tasks undertaken and processes followed for health promotion practice.
• Were your feelings at the time?
• Are your feelings now? Are there any differences? Why?
• Were the effects of what you did (or did not do)?
• “Good” emerged from the situation, e.g. for self/others?
• Troubles you, if anything?
• Were your experiences in comparison to your colleagues, etc.?
• Are the main reasons for feeling differently from your colleagues etc.?
Propose actions arising from what you’ve learned from this experience.
• Are the implications for you, your colleagues etc.?
• Needs to happen to alter/change the situation?
• Are you going to do about the situation?
• Happens if you decide not to alter anything?
• Might you do differently if faced with a similar situation again?
• Information do you need to face a similar situation again?
• What was positive? Negative? What made you think this?
• What made you think something was good or bad?
• Try to stand back from the experience to gain a sense of how it went.
• Examine your own judgements and what contributed to them. How do you feel about them
• Is the main learning I take from reflecting on this experience?
