Assessment Tasks
In this first assignment you should produce an account of your learning in the first six
weeks of the semester.
Consider your experiences on this module, the feedback you have received on your
portfolio entries and your own reflection on the material covered so far.
The completed learning logs and your up-to-date Personal Development Plan (PDP)
should be the basis of this reflection. You should also include other sources to
support your argument.
Your account should discuss the following points:
1. What have been the most important learning insights you have had so far?
2. Looking at your learning logs and the PDP please identify:
a. what your strengths are
b. which areas of your work need improvement.
3. What do you want to do next? Identify one of the areas of your work that
needs improvement and outline 2 or 3 ideas for its development.
Please attach your weekly learning logs (for weeks 1 to 6) and the fortnightly
updated Personal Development Plans (PDPs) as an appendix.
Support your reflection with academic literature to support your reflection. Use a
minimum of
5 academic references.
Assessment criteria:
1. Uses knowledge gathered and captured in learning logs and PDP by
linking different topics.
2. Identifies strengths clearly by adding examples and links to the learning
log and PDP from experience and theory.
3. Demonstrates an understanding of work that needs development and
illustrates what can be done to improve this further.
4. Presents work clearly and accurately using the appropriate personal
expression and organisational form (i.e., follows recommended structure,
uses third person to refer to information from literature and references
sources correctly by using the London Met Harvard Referencing System,
learning logs and PDP are attached).
