PART D - Journal and/or reflection

Graduate attributes are the qualities, skills and understandings that a student should develop during their studies. These attributes shape the contribution students are able to make to their profession and society. Graduate attributes include: communication; problem solving; critical thinking; information literacy; team work; information technology competence; cross cultural competence; and ethical practice.

You will be assessed based on your ability to demonstrate your developing self-awareness of these attributes. Provide a self or group reflection on how this course and specifically this assessment assisted you in building these attributes. You may address only some or the entire list of graduate attributes.

If you have chosen to work as a group you must also include a work journal for this task. The journal should include details of group activities (when, where, what and how) and individual work undertaken (similar to a diary outlining your contribution). You should submit your journal/s as an appendix to the assessment item.
