Note that your thoughts and reflections need to be drawn from the articles in the reading Brick.

A reflective marker is a short written piece of assessment that aims to encourage students to engage in an analytical manner with set material from the course. This is a chance for students to reflect on information, ideas and concepts and then provide an original written response. This assessment piece assists in the development of a strong authorial voice and an original analytical approach to a student’s written work. Students must reference the course material used to develop his/her response to the question. As this is a reflective piece of work, students may use the ‘first person’ structure in his/her written work. Students will then be expected to develop a reflective response to the question in 1200 words.

Students are required to submit an electronic copy to the Moodle drop box once the student has completed the assessment to her satisfaction.
