The Reflective Portfolio The Task: Select one LOGOS theology module that you have undertaken and one chapter from the LOGOS textbook (philosophy, ethics or theology). Using these as a basis, provide a reflection (1500 words) on a particular experience of yours, demonstrating how your learning assists you in thinking through the key ideas which puzzle, challenge, confront and define our participation in life. Use at least three academic sources (not inc. the Logos textbook) to help you grasp key terms and concepts. Make sure you address these questions and topics in your reflection: 1. Clearly and coherently describe the particular experience or event you are reflecting upon. 2. Identify which key issue (of the many possible) in the experience you will be reflecting upon and discuss the issue in some depth. 3. Unpack and explain what you have learned in the module and chapter that can be related to the experience in such a way that you demonstrate: (a) A new or deeper understanding of the experience and (b) That you have learned something that has changed or confirmed your approach to that kind of experience in the future. Please note: - Your own module notes do not count as an academic source, and neither does the Module Coordinator’s Powerpoint presentation. However, if you wish to quote the Powerpoint, you must reference appropriately. - Most importantly, choose a module and chapter which you found engaging, enjoyable and enlightening. This will make applying it to your chosen experience both easier and more fruitful. Please divide your reflective portfolio into the following 4 parts: (i) the specific experience, (ii) the key issues (in the experience that you have chosen) for reflection, (iii) your reflection, and (iv) what you have learned from the reflection. The criteria for assessing the Reflective Portfolio will be: (i) Reflection: ï‚· Demonstrated ability to identify and reflect upon previous life experience ï‚· Clarity in explaining experience (ii) Philosophical Reasoning: ï‚· Identification of problems and key issues involved ï‚· Integration of personal life experience with reasoning ï‚· Provide good reasons for your position ï‚· Overall consistency and coherence (iii) Exploration of Revelation ï‚· Integration of personal life experience with reasoning ï‚· Use of Scripture and tradition in relation to discussions of God ï‚· Understanding of Revelation in relation to theological arguments (iv) Research: ï‚· Choice of source(s) relevant to module content and/or experience ï‚· Reliability and academic quality of sources ï‚· Consistent referencing (v) Presentation and Structure: ï‚· Language and Writing style ï‚· Spelling and grammar ITEM 2: GRADED ASSESSMENT – REFLECTIVE PORTFOLIO 100% ï¿¼ï¿¼The University of Notre Dame Australia Date of Publication to Students: July 14, 2015 8 of 12 UNIT OUTLINE: PT103 – SEMESTER TWO 2015 ï¿¼ï‚· Paragraph structure and flow of argument 7.3 REFERENCING STYLE For Logos unit graded assessments, students must use one of these three referencing styles: ï‚· American Psychological Association 6th edition (APA) ï‚· Australian Guide to Legal Citations (AGLC3) ï‚· The Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (Chicago) Students may use the referencing style used in their School.
