Order Description
Personal Reflection

This assessment involves you writing a personal reflection about what you have learnt about memory or learning during this unit, with particular reference to your own observations about your memory or learning and what you have observed in others
.
I suggest you pick something that has particularly interested you or made you think. For example, you might have gained an insight into the fallibility of memory, so you could write
about your reflection on the fallibility of memory, your thoughts and feelings and your
response to these thoughts and feelings.
You can use observations of yourself and others as examples and context for your
writing. You can base your reflection on one of the topics covered in the unit, the topic of the proposed study in Part 1 above, the topic covered in Lab 1, or any research study related to the memory or learning topics covered in the unit that has interested you. The word limit for
this will be 600 words. You need to include at least 1 journal reference that details original research i.e. you can reference the textbook or other books, but you also need to include 1 primary source that describes
original research.

As explained at:

“Reflective writing is:
– your response to experiences, opinions, events or new information
– your response to thoughts and feelings
– a way of thinking to explore your learning
– an opportunity to gain self-knowledge
– a way to achieve clarity and better understanding of what you are learning
– a chance to develop and reinforce writing skills
– a way of making meaning out of what you study

Reflective writing is NOT:
– just conveying information, instruction or argument
– pure description, though there may be descriptive elements
– straightforward decision or judgement (e.g. about whether something is right or
wrong, good or bad)
– simple problem-solving
– a summary of course notes
– a standard university essay”
