Reflection Journal Guidelines

What is Reflective Learning?

For students, the pursuit of learning and knowledge growth demands a methodological approach in
order to verify actual understanding of the theory and relevance of the problems being addressed
within the context of a specific topic or subject.

Knowledge as such is not gained passively but is in essence the combination of both experience
and theory, which as a consequence, promotes deeper learning. Importantly, the process
necessitates consciously thinking about a question or problem and in turn, analysing and including
what you have accomplished or learned previously. Notably, this provides a framework for
developing life-long learning and indeed, enhancing your knowledge and commitment to learning.
Reflective learning also provides us with a process of being able to internally examine issues of
concern. New or different experiences initiate inquiry which result in a changed conceptual
perspective, either positively or negatively. The implications of which impact you personally
manifestly through change and knowledge growth.

So why use a Reflection Journal?

One of the most potent means to learn, reflect and make sense of our learning is by maintaining a
journal. In both academic and professional life Reflection Journals provide an effective vehicle for us
to organise, prioritise and record our experiences and expectations in order to foster insight and
assist our creative thinking. In simple terms, a reflection journal allows you to write about and reflect
on your experiences as they relate to the course content and theoretical concepts and frameworks
discussed. Journals are also crucial for developing problem-solving skills, time management and
importantly, to facilitate an efficient means of summarizing observations and changes which impact
on your cu
ent perspectives. Based on questions posed for each topic throughout this course, you
will be able to build on and record, what you have learned. This will form the basis of your
Reflection Journal (RJ). Importantly, as a discipline, you should copy and paste your online
submissions week by week – ready for submission at the end of the course.

The Process Rational

As alluded to learning is stimulated by the reflective integration of theory with experience; simply
eading about various concepts and techniques does not cause learning to occur. The process of
eflective learning encourages ‘active learning’ in as much as the documentation of significant
issues in a reflection journal are used to formalize and summarize your critical and reflective
thinking in a written format. This in turn, demonstrates and cements your knowledge and
understanding of the course materials, by documenting the lessons learned.

There are generally three major facets of a Reflection Journal, these include:

a) Theory: You need to be able to demonstrate that you have understood the theoretical
elements of the question or problem posed. Notably, you can derive this from the prescribed
eadings and from the course material (or indeed, from references/text you may have
personally sourced).

) Practice: Based on the theoretical concepts learned from the course, you need to be able to
demonstrate how you can apply this theory in a practical work-related sense.

c) Reflection: The reflection component is the 'personal insight' part of your response and as
such, documents the lessons learned.

The following expands upon these three components:

a) Theory: You need to develop a
ief summation of what you understand about the theory.
And, in addition, draw upon the prescribed readings and other course material. It is crucial
that you demonstrate your understanding of the various concepts, frameworks and/or models
and be able to concisely present a conclusion - relevant to the topic or problem.

) Practice: It is essential that you utilize the theory you have learned from the course-work. So
you need to consider the application of the theory from a practical

I have developed the art of working with teams and have also understood the various cultures spread across the world and how it affects the project deliverables. The one of the most important factor which is needed in success of the project is managing the resources effectively and efficiently. The relationship with the stakeholders is also one of the crucial aspects for the successful project. The various skills I have developed in me are the efficient time management skills, the budgeting skills and the resources to be allocated according to the requirement. On the other hand, I have also developed leadership skills and the art of communication. These learning modules have helped me enhance my skills and as a project manager I should not only be well versed with the software system and information but also should possess the business management soft skills for the successful implementation of the project in my career.
Project management is the application of the skills, knowledge and the tools required for the successful implementation of the project. A project is a temporary endeavour and is unique. The project manager has various activities and functions to perform and the leadership functions in directing and delegating the work for the project activities. The best project management practices involves the Initiation phase, Planning phase, Executing the plan, Control and monitoring phase and the last phase is closing phase. The initiation phase is one where the project charter and the concept of the project is prepared. This phase is the initiation phase of the project. The second phase planning, under this the scope and the budget of the project, the work
eakdown structure, Gantt chart, communication plan and the management of the risk is planned. The third phase of the project is to track the status of the project, the quality and also the forecasts are made. In the fourth stage the monitoring and control phase the performance of the project is monitored and tracked and the last phase is closing phase where the reports are made. To implement each phase effectively and efficiently the project manager should have the relevant knowledge in the field and manager should possess the interpersonal, technical skills for the project. The quality, scope, time, cost, best resource utilisation, risk management and the stakeholder management should be assured. The implementation and the competencies involved of the project team for the success or failure is based on the best practices of the...
