the background is hospitality? tourism Event management
this module is Effective Management
I need 5-6 reflective journals through the materials given. I mean you read each of them and then write the Reflective Journal.
eg? The RJ 1 folder means you would read all the materials in RJ 1 folder and then write 200-300 words reflective journal
And RJ 2….
RJ 3 ……
in total like 1500 -1800 words
And the requirement is as follows:
What are the aims of your journal?
Think carefully about why you are keeping this journal (apart from the assessment) as this will help you decide what to write about and will keep you focused on the task. Are you trying to see how you respond to the variety of lectures, for example, or perhaps you wish to explore how you learn about ways of approaching level 9 learning. You can have more than one aim, 4-5 would seem reasonable. Tip: Make a note of your aims in your journal in fact your first entry might be to discuss your aims.
Questions to consider to get you started:
- What sort of learner am I and do I want to experiment with other types of learning? Find out about learning styles, for example:
- What do I hope to get out of The Effective Manager module?
- What do I think a reflective journal is?
- Will I find reflective learning difficult?
- What do I know so far about this modules themes and what do I need to find out?
- What personal attributes will I need to be successful on this module i.e. organisational skills, initiative etc.
- In what ways do I see this module relating to my employment, past or present. How can I connect this learning?
- Self-Evaluation – How will I know if I have made a success of this module? (aside from the grade?!)
Questions to consider as you go along:
- What did I learn today in class?
- How did I feel about the experience?
- How might other people have experienced/understood the same content. Why?
- What did I find interesting and why?
- What did I find puzzling or unexpected and why?
- What do I feel about the way I am approaching the issue, subject or topic?
- How am I learning and can I link this to any theories about learning?
- How can I improve my learning techniques?
- What do I need to know more about and how can I plan for further action?
- What other resources interested or inspired me (guest speakers, workshops, visuals etc.)
- Looking through my journal periodically, how have I improved my writing, reflection and subject knowledge?
Questions to consider near the end of the process:
- What new knowledge, skills or understanding have I gained during the process of writing my journal?
- How can I use this knowledge, skills and understanding in the rest of my degree and beyond?
- Has this module helped me think about my future career?
- How would I explain what I have done to an employer when I graduate?
- Self-Evaluation – Have I succeeded in this module according to my own criteria?
How might you organise your material?
Date and Keyword
Make sure you date all your entries and give each entry a keyword or phrase as a title when you have finished it. It is also important to take time to recollect and review class materials or experiences by returning to the representation of the experience.
You might consider sharing your journal with a critical friend. Ideally this would be another student from the module. The main job of a critical friend is to ask probing questions to help you improve your writing and learning i.e. Why did you struggle to relate to a particular lectures content? What could you do to resolve this problem? How could you express this in a clearer way? etc. S/he shouldnt criticise your journal but offer constructive feedback in a helpful and friendly manner. This is not essential. It will depend on your own approach to successful learning.
The most common way of writing a reflective journal is to use narrative i.e. to tell a story. Human beings are natural story-tellers (think about telling your friend of partner what happened to you today) but we dont always associate this with academic work. While all of us probably wrote stories at school only some of us will continue this creative writing. Although essays may contain some narrative form, many of you will be out of practice at writing in this way. It may feel uncomfortable to use the first person (I) when you have learnt a more formal academic style. On the other hand, many people find this liberating; after all, who else is having these ideas, feelings and experiences but you.
Dynamic List of questions
A useful way to chart your progress is to keep a dynamic list of questions. On a separate page in your journal note down any questions you have about this module and date them. Every week or fortnight return to this list. Tick off any questions to which you now have the answer and date it. Then note down any new questions. This will help you see what has concerned you and when it has been solved. You can choose a few questions to write about elsewhere in your journal.
Theorists like Tony & Barry Buzan, authors of The Mind Map Book (2005) argue that our brain makes more connections when we display and record material visually than when we use list or narrative format. This may or may not be the case but you may find it useful to use mindmaps, different colours, photos, drawing and diagrams in your journal.
The points included here are offered only as suggestions to guide you as you begin to keep a reflective journal. The process is meant to enhance your learning experience, so use it in a way that will be most beneficial to you.
- All Journal submissions should be in one document…….not several. We will look for a minimum of 5 entries, so you should write up an entry at least every two weeks, although we do recommend doing it weekly.
- Each entry should be between 200-300 words, with a maximum total for the finished journal of 1,800 words
- Journal should have single line spacing or 1.5, font size 12, Times New Roman,
- Headings may be font size 14, but remember journal should be in a narrative style
- No page numbers, no headers or footers
- Write in 1st person singular.
- Start your RJ by identifying 4-5 aims
- Include a cover page
- The journal should be printed
- Specifically, you are required to reflect on the module learning outcomes in each entry, and the manner and extent to which you feel they were achieved (see Learning Outcomes below)
- Please attach a completed Assessment Cover Page with your assessment.
- NB:?only one submission is allowed so the file you submit should be the final, complete file.
