D. Reflections
You need to engage with all three reflections below. The word limit for each is 800 words (+/- 5%, excluding the References’ section). For each reflection, you will need to identify, by undertaking research, a minimum of one appropriate, relevant and reputable source, in addition to other sources provided as part of lectures, tutorials and independent study.
This is an individual piece of work; no two Portfolios can be identical, in part or in full. You cannot use other’ work unless you reference it.
1. Employability and career planning- Reflective writing
Write a reflection (800 words) on the way current Trends in Computer Science impact on your career planning.
In your response, you need to discuss
• potential specialisms you are considering as part of your future career;
• option modules at levels 5 and 6 you are considering, which will help you achieve your career aims;
• an employability related event you attended or planning to attend (see Engage for more information on events organised by the University and opportunities to meet a career advisor) and how it supported/ will support your future career;
• what further steps you need to take in order to prepare for your future career as part of your studies.
In your response you need to refer to at least one appropriate and trustworthy source, and include it in your References’ section.
You will find useful the information below on reflective writing.
Reflective writing includes
• a short description of the activity/project/ subject etc. in question;
• an analysis/interpretation of the outcome: thinking in depth and from different perspectives and trying to explain the outcome;
• this might involve thinking what a specific subject, piece of work, or achievement means to you and your on-going progress as a learner.
The analysis is followed by an evaluation and a set of actions to be taken.
Evidence of critical reflection is demonstrated by the learner’s awareness that actions are needed to be taken.
2. AI and Ethics- report writing
Write a short report (800 words) to outline the advances Artificial Intelligence has made; its impact on society; and the ethical questions AI applications might be raising.
In your report you will need to introduce Artificial Intelligence and explore its impact on society and the ethical questions raised either by discussing in depth a single area of application (such as the marking algorithm for the 2020 GCSE/A Level results; facial recognition applications; employment related applications, among others) or take a broader view of different types of applications and their impact.
You will need to use at least one reputable and trustworthy source in addition to references provided as part of lectures/ tutorials/ independent study and include all sources you use in the References’ section.
Your report needs to be divided into numbered sections, starting with an introduction.
The final two sections will be the Conclusion and the References section.
3. Internet of things and its cyber security implications- report writing
Write a short report (800 words) to discuss the Internet of Things and its Cyber Security implications. In your report, you will need to introduce the Internet of Things; discuss its difference from the traditional internet; explore the challenges it creates for cyber security; and touch upon ways these challenges can be resolved.
You will need to use at least one reputable and trustworthy source in addition to references provided as part of lectures/ tutorials/ independent study and include all sources you use in the References’ section.
E. Further information on Referencing
All three refection should include a separate References section, where the sources you consulted/referred to in your work are listed. You might use either an alphabetic referencing system such as the Westminster Harvard or a numerical referencing system such as the IEEE/Vancouver referencing system. Information on referencing can be found in your course Handbook as well as at the Library self-help guide on ‘How to reference your work’, available at
https://libguides.westminster.ac.uk/referencing
and https://libguides.westminster.ac.uk/referencing/examples
