Objective(s): This assessment task addresses the subject learning objective(s): A and D
This assessment task contributes to the development of graduate attribute(s): 4.0 and 5.2
Type: Reflection
Groupwork: Individual
Weight: 10%

Task:
Compose an individual one-page written reflection (500 words) on your experience of the changes in this subject which have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic. Primarily, the cancellation of on-site teaching and the move to online delivery. You are asked to use Gibbs’ (1988) model to structure your reflection (see details below), and to link your reflection to what you have learned about change management and leadership in this subject, and where relevant, to your current (or future) roles as health services managers.

[UPDATE: If you are currently a healthcare professional and would like to reflect instead on your professional experiences of change resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic at work, you can do so instead of reflecting on the change to online learning. Make sure to link your reflection to what you have learned about change management and leadership in this subject.]
The individual reflection should be guided by Gibbs’ (1988) model of reflection.

This model structures a written reflection based on the following headings:
1. Description – what happened?
2. Feelings – how did you feel about it?
3. Evaluation – what was positive and/or negative about the experience?
4. Analysis – what sense can you make of the situation?
5. Conclusion – what else could you have done?
6. Action Plan – if it happened again, what would you do?
