Your reflection component should comprise 10-15% of your assignment. If you choose to include personal experience, this should be no more than 5% of your assignment. Your reflections should include
(a) your reactions after having read the readings, listening to the lectures, and watching the required multi-media content,
(b) a brief summary of an experience or your previously-held knowledge of the content that may have influenced your reactions to, or reflection of, the content,
(c) substantively marrying your critical analysis with your reflection of the content (i.e., specifically how has your experience shaped your understanding and application of the content?).
No outside research is required. It is essential that students demonstrate that they have deeply engaged with the course content (i.e., lectures, readings, and multi-media assigned). A detailed rubric will be posted on Moodle and lecture time will be dedicated to discussing these assignments.
