Individual Reflective Journal
You are required to reflect on the materials presented in weeks 1-5, relating to sustainability.
Your task is to write about your ‘reflections’ in a journal.
You may choose to reflect on one or more of the themes or ideas that really made an impact on you, or with which you could identify.
In this assessment task, you must demonstrate your understanding of the chosen themes, and that you have considered the implications of these at a personal level. Critical thinking should also be demonstrated in these reflections.
The number of topics you need to consider is up to you, but as a minimum, you should consider the concept of ecological footprint as part of your reflection.
The criteria used to grade this task is on page 13.
For information on the style of writing required, please refer to the guides provided on the course Moodle page.
Information about reflective journals is also on the Moodle page.
900-1000 words – (assignments exceeding the word limit may not be marked and may be returned to the student for re-writing; assignments less than the required length will risk not covering the topic adequately and may result in a fail). Do not include synopsis or references in the word count.
Note: While a Reflective Journal will mainly comprise of your own thoughts and reflections written in ‘your own words’, Federation University Australia rules relating to referencing, citation and acknowledgement must be complied with for any content from other sources.
