This assignment requires submitting a "REFLECTIVE WRITING" which is based on a student's experience during a "Personal and Career Development" module at a European Business School (2nd year).
It has to be as specific as possible regarding the content of the module, so I am going to e-mail the following material separately:
1. The module's description (syllabus of the module).
2. The assessment criteria of the "reflective writing".
3. Photocopied material from a textbook, which describes how to write a "reflective writing".
