Academic and Professional Skills Assessment - Learning Portfolio

TASK OVERVIEW

Students are required to maintain a Learning Portfolio reflecting on their activities and learning across the semester. Each week students should complete two paragraphs (400 words in total) critically reflecting on their learning. Students are expected to develop written reflections about their learning on an ongoing basis across the semester.

Students are required to present the reflections in class at times nominated by the teacher for the purpose of receiving feedback. Please ensure that the reflections are completed regularly as this will reduce the amount of time needed to edit and polish the critical reflections that will be submitted in Week 12 as summative assessment.

The intent of the Learning Portfolio is for students to demonstrate achievement of the various learning outcomes, with emphasis on development of critical reflection. In addition, entries should demonstrate skills in referencing, paraphrasing and quoting.
