What is Self-Reflection?

“You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world.”–William Hazlitt

You can read countless books or watch countless videos about a topic, but there is no replacement for actual experience. Even after experience, there is still learning along the way. Being able to self-reflect at the end of a project, event, experience, or class is the best way to discover what went well, how we are impacted, and what we can change to better ourselves in the future. Nottingham (1998) states it as, “Self-reflection allows one to identify strengths and limitations in specific environments and the individual personality, learning, and behavioral characteristics that influence one’s interactions with others. Other important aspects of self-reflection are the considerations of differing attitudes, beliefs, cultures, ethics, values, and life experiences”. You will be in a career that will benefit from self-reflection, which is one of the best measures to keep getting better at what you do.

You will be looking at six different transferable skills and need to show proficiency in each of those skills, which will be used in courses now and in any type of future career after graduation from Rasmussen College. These skills allow you to better work with those you engage with on a daily basis. You will be required to choose a project/assignment(s) to upload to your portfolio that demonstrates the understanding of at least three of the six transferable skills and include a self-reflection on your proficiency in each skill and how it relates to your future career.

Critical self-analysis allows professionals to identify gaps in knowledge on a subject matter, skills, and competencies. There is tremendous power in critical self-reflection. Critical self-reflection is essential to advance personally and professionally, and it is expected of you as a Rasmussen College graduate as you enter your new profession.

Directions: In module 6, you will be asked to submit a reflection on transferable skills.You will be using at least three of the six transferable skills (see below) and the exemplary project/assignment(s) that demonstrate your course work during your program to develop your self-reflection to put into your Capstone Portfolio. Refer to the Transferable Skills Rubrics and the Self-Reflection Rubric to guide your response.
