BACKGROUND AND LEARNING CONTEXT
This assignment is a natural extension of our previous CMNS 3000 learning takeaways. In all of our assignments, we have included a Takeaways component that required reflection on what was learned about the theme or topic and what was learned about ourselves.
In this final assignment (Takeaways and Learning Reflection Narrative, A10), you will write a short (about four pages) reflective paper that has two components:
1. In Part One, you will write a short (about two pages) analysis of your key takeaways from two videos and elaborate on what your takeaways are in terms of your personal PDP (Professional Development Plan) for career growth and satisfaction.
2. In Part Two, you will write a short (about two pages) analysis that captures your key takeaways from the course by reflecting on your previous takeaways in the course.
Ensure that you review the Personal Takeaways and Reflection PPT posted on Week 13 of the course Moodle site for a full contextual understanding of the assignment requirements.
See assignment details next page.
