Context:
Self-reflection is a way of assessing yourself and the way you work and study. Reflecting helps in developing your skills further and linking practice with theory. It is about analysing what you do and why you do it and applying what you have learned in the future. Reflective self-awareness leads to better leadership skills and performance. More importantly, an enhanced understanding of oneself also provides a solid basis for empathy and leading others.
In part A, the focus was on you to reflect on the motivation for undertaking postgraduate studies and expectations regarding the course and ensuing career path.
Part B requires you to revisit Part A and develop a short video presentation on your learning experience and thinking, and how they might have evolved during the course of the subject.
