self reflection report group 1
Self-Reflection Report – group #1
  • Guidelines: “make a 500-word self-reflection report in view of general educational goals of the internship”
  • Resulting reports were insufficient: more about the company profile and the assignment than about themselves.
self reflection report group 2
Self-Reflection Report – group #2

Guidelines: write a 500 word self-reflection report taking into account the following points:

  • What dit you learn about yourself?
  • Did you discover unsuspected talents?
  • Did you meet unexpected challenges?
  • How did you deal with them
  • Which personal improvement points remain?
  • How dit internship broaden your view on career opportunities?
  • Self reflection should not be about the company, but about you.
self reflection report group 3
Self-Reflection Report – group #3

Guidelines (in addition to those of group #2)

  • Student fills in company grading form before internship
  • Again halfway through the internship
  • Again at the end of the internship
  • Compare 3 self-grade forms with company form as an additional aid in self-reflection

Comparison of groups

Quality of Self-reflection reports

Group size 19, 44 and 36 respectively

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Extended guidelines improve self-reflection reports
  • Additional self-grade forms further improve reports
  • Even in group #3, only 50% of students make acceptable self-reflections, so:
  • Further improvement still needed.
recommendations
Recommendations
  • Further emphasize self-grade forms
  • Stimulate students to set personal goals, as SMART objectives, before starting internship
  • Have SMART objectives evaluated before writing self-reflection
