Cooperative Education Work Term

Use the following steps as a guide to complete your work term reflective paper
Discuss your reflective paper with your supervisor/manager early in your work term
Maintain regular notes of your activities and experiences.
Prepare an initial draft of your reflective paper.
Edit, review, and share with a peer for comments and feedback.
Use this feedback to prepare a final draft.
Proofread for accuracy, completeness, spelling, and grammar.
Include the reflective paper as part of the Work Term Report along with the Work Term Self-Assessment and Employer Assessment.

Your reflective paper should contain between 2,000 to 2,500 words. More important than length, however, is the clarity, accuracy, and completeness of the report. Your reflective paper is not merely a technical description or an informational report; it should contain your own ideas and be an analysis of your work term. Many ideas are better explained using graphs, charts, diagrams or photographs, instead of words, so please be sure to add visuals wherever possible. Aligning with Algonquin College’s plagiarism policy (AA20: Plagiarism), all content in this report must be your own work or properly cited in the works cited section.
