Task Instructions
1. During Module 1 – 5, you were ask to produce a weekly journal to record your learnings each
week. Based on these weekly journals, please write a 1500 word reflective report about your
experience.
2. You are required to follow the four steps of Kolb’s learning cycle when writing the reflective
report.
You will keep a learning journal throughout the trimester. Each week as you complete the learning
activities you record your experience in spreadsheet or word document.
A suggested format for the learning journal is as follows:
Date Learning Activity Impact (what it means to
you)
Evidence (attach record of activity).
This might be a set of slides, word
document or pictures of work you
have completed in class
For each day in your learning journey, write the date and then the learning activity you engaged in.
Detail what impact the learning had on you and then include any evidence you might like to keep for
use later on. This journal should be appended to this assessment when you submit it.

New Jersey.)
Step 1
Concrete experience – Keep a learning journal
MIS500_Assessment 3_Brief_Module 6.1 Page 3 of 7
The first step is to keep a learning journal for the trimester (Modules 1.1 through to 5.2 as
described above. You should have already completed this step by now.
Step 2
Reflective observation – Summarise what happened
You should now be able to comment on your experiences this trimester. This exercise is not
a list of what you have done but rather an observation of what you have learned – were there
any themes that arose from your journal? The point of a learning journal is to start a
discussion on what the key concepts and skills you have learned and acquired during the
course of this subject. This is because we often don’t stop to think and reflect on what we
have learned
Step 3
Abstract conceptualization – Analyse what this means
The next step is to analyse what you have found. Reflective practice is a process of thinking about new
experiences with a view of learning. It is a form of personal response to new experiences, situations,
events or information. What new knowledge have you gained in response to this exercise? And what
does this information mean? You are expected to reflect at a deep level here. This means that it is not
just about explaining what you have done in this subject rather it requires you to think about your
personal beliefs, your background and the way you perceive the world around you. Did you learn
anything in this subject that challenged you or change the way you thought about information systems
or business?
Step 4
Active experimentation - New action
The final step is to discuss what you plan to do with this new knowledge. These new insights may lead
to a change of thinking or behaviour. In what ways? Set yourself some specific goals for your future
studies or career.
1. You are required to write this assessment in a report format using the following headings:
2. Introduction
3. Reflective Observation
4. Abstract conceptualization
5. Active experimentation
6. Conclusion
7. Appendix of learning journal (with evidence)
Please note that simply describing what you have done each week will not be sufficient to pass this
assessment. You are expected to go ‘deeper’ and analyse what this subject meant to you and your
future.
