Order Description
HRM 3120 Leading Change Assessment Briefing 3 of 3:
The Reflective Diary and Summative Reflection (HRM3120 Leading change Middlesex University)
The third component is:
Submission of your weekly reflections PLUS a summative reflective review on these accounts (35%) (1,000 words) This will address Learning Outcomes 4 and 5 below:
4. Critically reflect on their past career/life lines and transferable skills to show how their past experiences impact on their understanding of leadership and change

5. Use reflective and reflexive tools for improving reasoning and analytical/evaluative abilities as a leader of change

Students are expected to use the reflective toolkit and module handbook to reflect on the weekly sessions. This assessment will therefore cover all sessions. At the end of the module students are asked to submit these reflections with a 1000 word critically reflective summary of what their responses to the module experiences say about their readiness to become leaders of change. They are expected to use examples from their weekly reflections to evidence their academic and personal growth and therefore must submit all the weekly reflections alongside the reflective summary. Formative feedback is provided on progress if students present their reflections during one to one tutorials. If students are absent they will be expected not only to make up the work covered in the session but also to reflect in the diary on the consequences of not being in class. We expect to see a reflection piece for each week of the module’s run.

Your reflection should be in essay format and focus on your academic and personal growth and how this contributes to your ability to lead change. To be successful you need to be able to attribute this growth to your experiences and participation in HRM3120. The easiest way to do this is to use relevant examples from your weekly reflections and make clear connections to any changes in your world outside of university to write your essay. Refer to the marking rubric as you include the following in your summative reflective essay.
You should aim:
• to introduce yourself and explain the impact that your experiences and participation has had on growth as a leader of change over the course of the module.
• To state what have you learned about yourself as a result of your learning experiences
• Identify which of your weekly reflections illustrate this growth and change
• Explain any changes in your view about your readiness to lead change
• Explain how any skills gained will be used for future success in your life and what you will do to strengthen any you feel are underdeveloped. Please be specific.
• Integrate relevant theory throughout

A key point to stress is that we are looking to identify the quality and depth of thinking and discussion, and the relevance/significance of your reading firstly to your personal leadership style and secondly to your role in leading change in an organisation in the future (the ‘so what this means or tells me is ..’). Large extract from your diaries and large quantities of superficially-considered material is not what we are seeking. The 1000 word guideline requires you to exercise judgement and evaluation of what you connect and how you make sense of your accounts and articulate the relevance to the Learning Outcomes.

Rubric (Guidelines on how the work will be assessed):
Excellent (1st class work)
The Daily Reflective Accounts
The reflective accounts will be comprehensive in nature and demonstrate a willingness to explore change at personal and organisational levels. There will be a full range of reflective tools used to record the accounts that span not only the module experience but make connections with experiences outside of the university context. Theoretical and Professional views will be used to critically assess how experiences within the module assist in building employability. There will be clear links between the accounts and any development goals set.
The Reflective summary
The Reflective summary will be critically reflective in nature and demonstrate the ability to select key examples from the weekly accounts to illustrate your development as a leader of change. Relevant theoretical concepts will be integrated to demonstrate connections between these experiences, HRM3120 learning outcomes and the themes explored during the module. The summary will also demonstrate an ability to identify skills and evidence personal growth and improvement and therefore the accounts selected should cover the span of the module and clearly demonstrate what was learnt from reviewing your experiences in this way. An excellent summary will make clear links between the past and present to consider your readiness to become leaders of organisational change in the future.
Very good (2.1 work)
The Daily Reflective Accounts
The reflective accounts will be full in nature and demonstrate a willingness to explore change at personal and organisational levels. The range of tools used will be representative of those available but clear preferences will be shown for a particular type of approach. Although there will be evidence of the connections made with experiences outside of the university context, this will be inconsistently applied and/or not always critically assessed and linked to theoretical and professional viewpoints. Where inconsistencies exist, it will be clear that the student has not maintained these levels of deep reflection for the span of the module or considered their employability. There will also be less clear links between the accounts and the development goals set.
The Reflective Summary
The Reflective summary will be critically reflective in nature and demonstrate the ability to select key examples from the weekly accounts to illustrate your development as a leader of change. The summary will also demonstrate an ability to identify skills and evidence personal growth and improvement and therefore the accounts selected should cover the span of the module and clearly demonstrate what was learnt from reviewing your experiences in this way. The difference between a very good and excellent summary will be whether the levels of critical analysis are sustained, connected to future development goals and aspirations and whether relevant theoretical concepts are as integrated within the summary and demonstrate the connections between the experiences, learning outcomes or module themes.
Good (2.2 work)
The Daily Reflective Accounts
The content of the reflective accounts will be limited in nature. They will do little to demonstrate engagement, growth and/or change during the module. It will be clear that the student has maintained levels of mainly surface levels of reflection for the span of the module. There will be a narrow range of reflective tools used to record the weekly accounts that are mainly descriptive and make few links between the range of module experiences offered and changes outside of the university context. There will be limited appropriate use of theoretical and professional views to explore events and no development goals set.
The reflective summary
Due to limited weekly accounts, the reflective summary will be unable to evidence relevant examples to illustrate what you have learnt about your responses to the changes experienced during the module as well as what you have learnt from failing to review your experiences in this way. The challenges this presents to the creation of your reflection summary will go unexplored and therefore provide limited evidence of your personal growth or achievement of the learning outcomes identified in the module handbook. Limited evidence will be presented to demonstrate an ability to make relevant connections between the past and present in order to plan for the future.

Poor (3rd class)
The Daily Reflective Accounts
The reflective accounts will be thin in nature and bear little resemblance to the learning outcomes or themes identified in the module handbook. There will be no experimentation with the reflective tools used to record the accounts and no theoretical or professional views are overtly used in these mainly descriptive pieces that contain few connections to the future.
The reflective summary
The Reflective summary will be thin in nature with limited examples taken from the daily reflections and no use of academic underpinning. No consideration of future goals or employability.
Fail –
The Daily Reflective Accounts
Descriptive accounts with gaps for missing weeks.
The reflective summary
Descriptive summary, no connections to weekly accounts, evidence of reflection and thin in nature.
