Self Reflection

this is a self reflection of that will be written on group models, please use every guidance attached including the module guide, also remember that this is a UK assignment and it should be written in Harvard format.
Assignment 2: Reflection Outline Guidance

Format suggestion

Introduction (10% of your word count)

This should set the scene for the reader:

1) Tell the reader why reflective practice in team work is important

2) Say that you will be reflecting on an example of team work/group work with a particular focus on… (Here you should look at two points that you may want to reflect on – these are personal to you ie. everybody’s examples will be different). This is where you should link to team roles and group stages (Belbin and Tuckman).

3) Then, say that you will be applying a reflective model (say which one) in order to… (Here state the purpose of reflection).

Remember in writing up the main body, you should cover each theme in order that you outlined them in your introduction.

Main body

1st paragraph – define/explain the reflective model that you will be using and say that you will be apply these to your reflection on the group/team scenario.

2nd paragraph – provide a brief explanation of how you felt prior to the team work/group meeting. Depending on the reflective theory, you could apply it starting here e.g. Schon has a “before the event” stage.

3rd paragraph – during the meeting discuss your feelings and the way you reacted to the team/roles that you took on.

4th chapter – Here you should delve into a chapter or two on analysis:

· Consider applying theories of your personal attributes and apply to how you were performing in order to meet the group goal (addresses LO5).

· Look at your communication skills – what does this reveal about you (consider Belbin’s traits in terms of your own role).

· Consider the team’s (Belbin’s ) roles they adopted within the group and how these roles contributed to group dynamics (LO2).

· Consider either how the different personality traits worked during the process (relating to Tuckman’s stages), or what your role at a specific stage that may have helped the group to progress with the task. It is important that you do not focus on only one stage, demonstrate a moving forward and reflective thinking… Consider areas of difficulty/conflict under as the storming stage etc.

· Where possible in the main body, refer to articles on team roles and performance in health and social care and aspects of reflexive practice.

Conclusion

Here, you should conclude the whole episode and demonstrate the importance of reflective practice in helping you to evaluate and analyse yourself in terms of character and traits. You should also state that this is on-going reflection, thus formulate an action plan on how you would handle the situation differently next time.

You should reference between 6-10 sources.

2. Learning and Teaching Strategy
A combination of lectures, individual and small group tutorials, alongside group based activities will be used to develop knowledge and understanding. Theory will be linked with examples from health and social care through the use of numerous case studies, role plays and workshops. This is aimed at enabling you to develop a clear understanding, considering how the theory and academic knowledge will link into health and social care practice. You will have considerable one to one support from your tutors at the University. There will also be some practical and skills session, related to areas such as self-reflection and group communications. Distance and online resources will also be used to complement the learning process. Academic skills development will be embedded within the modules, with the inclusion of study skills appropriate to the stage of study.

3. Module Communications
The Module Tutor’s contact details are provided at the top of this page. You must check your University of Bolton email address and the Moodle area dedicated to this module regularly as many module communications are channelled through these media.

Your Module Tutor will normally aim to respond to your email messages within 2 full working days of receipt; however responses will be longer in holiday periods.

4. Module Description
This module will explore communication within groups and the development of confidence in working as part of a team. You will consider the interpersonal and team working skills essential to health and social care. The importance of team roles, hierarchy and leadership will be considered.

7. Assessment Feedback
Feedback on items of assessment can be formal (such as on a signed feedback form) or informal (such as advice from a tutor in a tutorial). Feedback is therefore not just your grade or the comments written on your feedback form, it is advice you get from your tutor and sometimes your peers about how your work is progressing, how well you have done, what further actions you might take.

We recognise the value of prompt feedback on work submitted. Other than in exceptional circumstances (such as might be caused by staff illness), you can expect your assignment and examination work to be marked and feedback provided not more than 15 working days from the deadline date. However, please note that that such feedback will be provisional and unconfirmed until the Assessment Board has met and may therefore be subject to change.

Please take time you read or listen to your assessment feedback. This can be very useful in determining your strengths and key areas for development, and can therefore help you improve on future grades.

9. Formative Assessment
Formative assessment is employed to support your learning on the module, allowing you to reflect on feedback on your progress from your tutors and peers. It takes a variety of forms including verbal; written (via email feedback) and does not contribute to the final module mark.

You will be asked to submit the introduction to your assignment along with evidence of your work towards learning outcome one for formative assessment. OR a draft plan indicating the overall structure of your essay.

Formative assessment is systematic and planned assessment that you are expected to undertake and to receive feedback on, but is not considered at an assessment board and is not subject to internal or external moderation.

11. Guidelines for the Preparation and Submission of Written Assessments

Adapt for other formats

1. Written assessments should be word-processed in Arial or Calibri Light font size 12. There should be double-spacing and each page should be numbered.

2. There should be a title page identifying the programme name, module title, assessment title, your student number, your marking tutor and the date of submission.

3. You should include a word-count at the end of the assessment (excluding references, figures, tables and appendices).

Where a word limit is specified, the following penalty systems applies:

· Up to 10% over the specified word length = no penalty

· 10 – 20% over the specified indicative word length = 5 marks subtracted (but if the assessment would normally gain a pass mark, then the final mark to be no lower than the pass mark for the assessment).

· More than 20% over the indicative word length = if the assessment would normally gain a pass mark or more, then the final mark will capped at the pass mark for the assessment.

4. All written work should be referenced using the standard University of Bolton referencing style– see: http://www.bolton.ac.uk/bissto/Finding-Information/Referencing/Home.aspx

5. Unless otherwise notified by your Module Tutor, electronic copies of assignments should be saved as word documents and uploaded into Turnitin via the Moodle class area. If you experience problems in uploading your work, then you must send an electronic copy of your assessment to your Module Tutor via email BEFORE the due date/time.

6. Please note that when you submit your work to Moodle, it will automatically be checked for matches against other electronic information. The individual percentage text matches may be used as evidence in an academic misconduct investigation (see Section 13).

7. Late work will be subject to the penalties:

8. Up to 7 calendar days late = 10 marks subtracted but if the assignment would normally gain a pass mark, then the final mark to be no lower than the pass mark for the assignment.

9. More than 7 calendar days late = 1 mark awarded

10. In the case of exceptional and unforeseen circumstances, an extension of up to 14 days after the assessment deadline may be granted. This must be agreed by your Programme Leader, following a discussion the Module Tutor. You should complete an Extension Request Form available from your Tutor and attach documentary evidence of your circumstances, prior to the published submission deadline.

Requests for extensions for periods longer than 14 calendar days must be made using the Mitigating Circumstances procedures.

Requests for extensions which take a submission date past the end of the module (normally week 15) must also be made using the Mitigating Circumstances procedures.

See: http://www.bolton.ac.uk/Everything/StudentInfoPolicyZone/2017-18-Documents/MItigating-Circumstances-Regulations-and-Procedures-2017-18.pdf

Please note that the failure of data storage systems is not considered to be a valid reason for an extension. It is therefore important that you keep multiple copies of your work on different storage devices before submitting it.

12. Procedures for Examinations (NOT APPLICABLE)
13. Academic Misconduct
Academic misconduct may be defined as any attempt by a student to gain an unfair advantage in any assessment. This includes plagiarism, collusion, commissioning amongst other offences. In order to avoid these types of academic misconduct, you should ensure that all your work is your own and that sources are attributed using the correct referencing techniques. You can also check originality through Turnitin.

Please note that penalties apply if academic misconduct is proven. See the following link for further details:
