After you have read this information, head over to the Assignment 4 Q&A discussion board to ask any questions and see what your peers are saying about this assignment.
Work through the following steps to complete this assignment:
1. Reflect on the development of your Future Work Skills. Reflect on how your awareness of the online environment has changed.
2. Reflect on how the learning in this unit may positively affect your work in other units during the life of your course as well as in any future workplaces.
3. Don't forget to include an introduction and conclusion.
4. Find relevant sources to back up your arguments, citing these within the body of your reflection and including a full Swinburne Harvard or APA reference list (not included in word count).
5. Compile and edit your reflection in a single Word document and submit as below.
The ideas that you generate as part of this process will help prepare your draft.
The following structure may help you to organise your work. Word counts for each section are approximate (as long as the total word count is between 1350 and 1650 words).
• Introduction (150 words).
• Main Point 1: How one to two of my Future Work Skills have developed since the beginning of the teaching period, the experiences and concepts that have helped and hindered this progress, and how this learning will impact my future studies and career (300 words and two paragraphs).
• Main Point 2: How my ‘current knowledge of the online environment’ section has developed since the beginning of the teaching period, the experiences and ideas from sources that have helped or hindered this progress, and how what I have learnt about myself as a learner as part of this experience will impact my future studies and career (300 words and two paragraphs).
• Main Point 3: My progress towards one to two of my unit goals, the experiences and ideas from sources that have helped or hindered this progress, and how achieving these unit goals will impact my future studies and career (300 words and two paragraphs).
• Main Point 4: My progress towards one to two of my course goals, the experiences and ideas from sources that have helped or hindered this progress, and how achieving these unit goals will impact my future studies and career (300 words and two paragraphs).
• Conclusion (150 words).
There is flexibility in how the information is sequenced, provided that essay-writing conventions are followed, the key points are covered and that the word count requirements are addressed.
Remember to draw on themes and readings from this unit to help support your ideas. Use Metzger's criteria when selecting sources.
