Last Updated: September 20, 2023 CMN323 Fall 2023 Introduction to Professional Practice Instructor: Yukari Seko, Ph.D. Weekly Written Reflection (8% x 4 = 32%) DUE: on D2L one week following the in-class meeting, Mondays 11:59pm Overview: During weekly in-class meetings, you will engage in interactive activities with your peers, such as small- group problem solving, debate, or scavenger hunt. From Week 4 to 11 (except for Week 5), you will choose 4 out of 7 weeks to reflect on your learning by summarizing a weekly activity and answering questions/prompts provided each week during in-class meetings. You can submit more than 4 written reflections and your best 4 scores will count towards your final grade. On D2L Gradebook the lowest 3 grades will be presented as "dropped." Note: This assignment is designed to encourage active participation and collaboration in class. If you wish to submit an activity reflection, you must attend class and engage in weekly in-class activites. Attendance will be taken every week in class . If your attendance is not recorded, your activity reflection will not be graded. Requirement: 1) S ummary of the week's group activity (100-150 words) Provide a concise and clear summary of the week's group activity, articulating what you have done, who you worked with, and how the collaborative learning went. In some weeks, you will be asked to submit the outcome of group activity as appendix. Group size is usually 3-5 people, while in some weeks you will work in a pair. In some weeks, you will be asked to summarize the guest lecture. Detailed instructions will be provided each week. Include the following information in your summary: Activity title and/or topic Names of group member(s) who you worked with 2) Answer to the week's question s/prompts (200-350 words) Each week a few prompts/questions will be provided in-class. Answer the prompt/question in a succinct and concise manner. Weekly reflections are not meant to be simple summaries on the weekly lectures, class readings, or in-class activities. They are an opportunity for you to demonstrate your critical thinking skills, your curiosity on the subject, and your ability to creatively answer the questions/prompts. 3) Take a reader-centred approach. A reader-centred approach prioritizes clarity and simplicity to ensure the reader can comprehend the material. Your paper should be understandable on its own for someone who did not know about the in-class activities or guest lectures, because the person who grades your paper (e.g., GAs) may not know about the activities or guest lectures.
