of future career and/or their life generally. (3) reflect on new insights gained about oneself as a 

result of learning the unit, and propose a plan for self-development. 

Minimum number of concepts/theories/themes required to pass: 6   

Students ought to start the reflective essay in week 4 after the submission of their first 

assignment. From week 4 to week 9 (a total of 6 weeks), students are expected to reflect on 

the topics (week 1-week 9) this unit has covered and evaluate which concepts or theories 

have inspired their thinking or influenced their decision making. This assignment still 

requires an essay format with introduction section outlining the scope, purpose and 

structure information. The body paragraphs need to contain at least six themes over the 

course of six weeks, and each theme needs to contain a CONVINCING and PERSONAL justification of why these concepts/theories are chosen and how the mentioned 

concepts/theories have changed/might change the students’ thinking or the students’ 

decisions.  For example, students could identify the concepts of “automatic versus critical 

thinking” as a theme for one week’s reflection, and illustrate with personal examples how 

having learned about the differences has enabled him/her to be more effective in making a 

certain decision at work. Close to the end, the essay needs to reflect on self-knowledge and 

highlight implications for future self-development.  


To successfully complete this assessment task, students should answer the following reflective essay questions: 


 Which concepts/theories from which week’s learning activities are significant or important to you?   Why are these concepts/theories you have identified important or significant to you? (Theoretical review)   How are the concepts/theories you have learned influencing/impacting your decision-making in relation to your current interpersonal relationships, professional workplaces and/or personal life? (Practical Application)  What have you learned about yourself through the unit activities? What skills do you possess and what skills are you lacking? How are you going to improve your decision-making in the future? (Self-knowledge and self-development)   You should tie all your arguments/insights together at the end of your paper, highlighting how you think you will be able to use your learning in your future career and in life generally.
