Write a 5-7 page paper in which you reflect on your writing progress and how this course has influenced your professional practice and goals.
The role of reflection is important to the leader for anticipating, planning, and adjusting according to learned and lived experiences. Reflection on our knowledge and skills as education leaders must be an ongoing process. This helps us adapt as necessary for continuous improvement and development in our role as leaders and scholars.
Professional practice requires ongoing reflection to identify strategies, behaviors, processes, and dispositions that lead to one’s best work. Understanding your own learning and areas for improvement of knowledge and skills will be important to your professional development as a leader and researcher. This assessment will help you reflect critically on:
The writing and revision choices you made in the Literature Review and Ethical Behavior, Diversity, and Civil Discourse assessments.
How your experience in this course relates to your professional orientation and career goals.
