The following report consists in a self-reflection of me related to an assessed academic debate. The debate was regarding the current practices of HRP in order to understand if these are sufficient or insufficient to meet the future resourcing requirements of the workplace, for that, students were divided into two groups, one group would be against the motion and the other group including me would be for the motion. The aim for this report is to provide a description of self-reflection and why this is important, how I did my research and how effective it was giving examples of things that helped me understand the debate including some areas I missed, delivery of debate, assessing how I interact and socialize with the group so that I see if I can practice the skills I have learnt. It also provides insights of various strengths and weaknesses I possess and various things I could have and want to improve, giving examples of how the experience could have been improved and things I will do differently next time.
Definition of Self-Reflection
Reflection is a cognitive process that promotes self-awareness and encourages self-assessment, it allows you to think critically about your ability to effectively join content knowledge with practice to reach diverse populations of learners. It is a form of personal response to experiences, situations, events or new information. Reflective thinking demands that you recognise that you bring valuable knowledge to every experience. Reflective writing helps you develop and clarify the connections between what you already know and what you are learning, between theory and practice and between what you are doing and how and why you do it, encourages you to consider and comment on your learning experiences, not only what you have learned, but how you did so. It helps you to clarify what you have studied, integrate new knowledge with previous knowledge, and identify the questions you have and what you have yet to learn. It involves a student’s ability to be critically toward his own strengths and weaknesses on an academic, social, and professional level. Reflecting on mistakes can help you avoid repeating them. At the same time, reflecting on your discoveries helps identify successful principles to use again. Furthermore self-reflection makes the learner realize the objectives of the studies. You will know if or if not you are scoring the objectives of the study through self-reflection. Open Learn (2012)
The research gathered for the debate explored and examined available secondary research only. I found that researching it with technology was much more effective. I have used the internet to prepare my debate. Annual reports and Books were used for the research.
