Process for Reflective Writing
Reflections are intended to assist you in articulating and strengthening your understanding of the learning activities covered in class. Write the first draft, and then review it. You are not to merely describe the activity or experience. You must carefully reference your work using the Harvard Referencing System. Each Reflective Journal entry must include a minimum of 2 References. If you do not include any references in your reflections, your work will be marked to a pass level only.
Below is a suggested format for each of the entries.
Entry Your entries are to be placed on-line in the Reflective eJournal Forum in the VU Collaborate site — Hardcopy, email are not accepted

Assessment of Critical Reflection Writing
Non Reflectors: A very descriptive report on what is/was happening and/or the content, rather than revisiting the material; impersonal account where ideas are substantiated only with reference to other writers and not with personal experiences; and tends to use simple logic, such as if this....then that.
Reflectors: Identify relationships between prior knowledge and feelings about new material; are able to modify the welt known to suit new situations; arrive at insights, possibly some are original but do not demonstrate the validation of assumptions or of making knowledge their own.
Critical reflectors: Always return to experience in discussion; attempt to continually examine experience and self in a critical manner; pursue alternative views and possibilities; draw on a number of resources; are courageous in trying out new ideas — are amenable to change; and do not take things for granted but deliberately test proposition.
