Week 8 – Assignment: Utilize Feedback through Review Self-Reflection and Literature Review

In Week 7, you integrated and applied elements of the course content in the Signature Assignment, which allowed you to address a significant question or issue (i.e., through creative thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving, inquiry and analysis, etc.). Using the feedback from your Week 7 assignment, you will have the opportunity to complete a self-reflection and respond accordingly.  Reflect on and respond to how the feedback provided can help you improve your academic performance and contribute to your professional growth. In addition to your self-reflection, you will also conduct an independent literature review of relevant scholarly, peer-reviewed sources. Choose sources that support your ideas for enhancement of the course competencies and content areas where you have identified opportunities for improvement. For example, if your professor indicated you need improvement in the area of team leadership, select sources that would enhance your knowledge and skill base in this area.

Your Week 8 assignment has two parts.

Part 1: Self-Reflection

You will complete a self-reflection using the Feedback Review Template. The Feedback Review Template is located in this week’s Course Resources area.  To complete your self-reflection, seek clarity from your professor about the areas you did not understand or areas that require improvement. Schedule a one-to-one meeting with your professor to discuss the feedback provided and to inform your responses.  Use the Feedback Review Template to address the following themes:

·         How you developed and demonstrated the course competencies tied to this course.

·         The practical relevance of the course concepts and course competencies to your professional growth and career interests.

·         Future considerations (e.g., key trends or challenges) to keep in mind as related to the topics covered in this course.

Be sure to comprehensively address the feedback provided by the professor for your Week 7 Signature Assignment. As you complete the template, you will be asked to address the following questions:

·         What are the areas in which your professor indicated you did well? Why do you think you did well in this (these) areas?

·         What are the areas in which your professor indicated you need to improve? What can you do to improve in this (these) areas?

·         How did your professor’s feedback help your mastery of the course subject matter?

·         How did the Week 7 Signature Assignment and this course help you to develop the course competencies?

·         What aspects of this assignment can you take forward into your professional career and why?

·         How did this course contribute to your understanding of possible trends and/or challenges related to the profession of health administration in the future? What do you need to consider regarding the course topic and why?

Part 2: Annotated Bibliography

You will prepare an annotated bibliography of five scholarly, peer-reviewed resources to enhance your knowledge base related to selected course competencies and that is informed by your self-reflection and professor feedback. The resources must be current, published within the past 3-5 years. Each annotated bibliography should be no less than three robust paragraphs. Use feedback from your professor to identify scholarly, peer-reviewed sources that can help you improve in the areas noted (e.g., assignment enhancement, personal and/or professional growth, topic of further interest prompted by the course content).

Use the annotated bibliography guide from Academic Success Center (ASC)* to ensure that your annotated bibliography meets all requirements.

*Keep in mind for this assignment, each annotated bibliography should be no less than three robust paragraphs.
