BISM7255 Business Information Systems Analysis and Design

INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT - WEIGHTING: 25%

Reflective Journal on Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Blended Learning

Lectures with the Low-Code Platform Mendix

Assignment task

Starting in the Teaching Week after the break, the learning and teaching in BISM7255 will be in

Blended Learning Mode with a particular focus on the no-code/ low-code application Mendix. This the

core part of the Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) and is accompanied by a number of surveys on

learning progress. To have a final assessment of the student’s learning, a reflective journal about the

low-code business application (app) is to be created, which corresponds with the app. It is the final

assessment piece for the course.

Students are expected to write in their reflective journal about their significant Mendix learning

experiences. This means they should reflect on the content, meaning, and value of the experience in

learning coding and app development. It is important in the reflection to personally assess how the

learning improves their future careers and career prospects(e.g., as a Business Analyst, Product Owner).

This discussion should address whether and how the learning experience positions them better in the

job market. Finally, the journal should end with a critical account of the learning choice made (i.e., the

learning style/ approach the student chose to learn coding and app development in the context of the

WIL blended learning mode), and an evaluation of how that learning choice affected their overall

learning of the Mendix app development.

To better appreciate this assignment, it needs to be clear what a reflective journal is and how it is used

for teaching and learning purposes. Based on the article by Plack et al. (2005) (p. 200), a reflection is

defined “as the process of examining an experience” undertaken as “an internal process that helps the

individual refine his or her understanding of an experience”. An expected and desired outcome of the

reflection is that “it may lead to changes in the individual’s perspective”. Ultimately, reflections “result

in new insights and deeper understandings of [a person’s] experiences” … and … “through this

analytical process that the reflective [person] … develops a change in perspective”.

The Queensland Curriculum & Assessment Authority explains that reflective journaling helps students

achieve core skills of learning. In general, a learning journal can document a variety of information,

ideas, thoughts, learning strategies, and working processes, and should contain decisions made and

reasons or justifications for these decisions. Because the learning journal is reflective, it informs further

learning or future experiences. It enables students to identify their growth throughout a subject or

experience, and set goals, and develop metacognitive skills.

It is recommended to structure, with the relevant headings, the journal into the following four sections:

1. Purpose

In your own words, describe how the reflection on the WIL Blended Learning lectures on Mendix can

help you learn better.

2. Significant Learning Experiences

In your own words, present learning experiences and reflect on their meaning. The learning experiences

must relate to different knowledge, skills, and capabilities. This means each learning experience must

be a unique learning event – not learning the same but more of it. It also must be a specific moment in

time, not referring to an ongoing process of learning.

Version(21 February2022) 2

In this section, the student also needs to master the articulation of a reflection, not a description. A

reflection shall be a critical and reflective engagement about the Mendix learning experiences and their

meaning for the student.

The described learning experiences need to match the Mendix app submitted. This means that the

description needs to be an authentic account of the learning in the course. For example, it cannot be that

a student reflects on the app development and elaborates how s/he created microflows, but the student’s

app does not have a microflow. Inconsistencies like this will be reflected in reduced marks.

3. Implications for Career

In your own words, think ahead of your future workplace, the job you want to do, the company you

want to work for, and reflect on how the Blended Learning lectures helped, prepared, and advanced you

in this regard.

4. Assessment of Learning Choice

In your own words, assess your choices in preparation, engagement, own contributions for the Blended

Learning lectures on Mendix. It can include a personal reflection on things that worked for you and

things you would do differently considering the unique nature of Blended Learning and the creation of

an app.

It is expected that the reflective journal will be around 750 words to present the learning and impact

reflections. However, the word limit is not considered as a specific criterion in the marking. This means

that an assignment with only 500 words, but written concisely and focused tightly on the reflections

and insights made, might be of better quality than a longer journal. Hence, students should dedicate

time for revising and improving the writing to clearly achieve a reflection, not a simple reporting of

past experiences.

Hints: We found that longer texts are not better assignments. A longer journal means that the student

includes a lot of descriptions. Yet, the assignment asks you to reflect. Reflections are shorter because

they articulate your own awareness of how you think. Markers do not want to read ‘what’ you did in

WIL but ‘why’ you did it and ‘how’ you achieved it.

Analysing and understanding yourself better through the reflections will make you a better learner for

the ‘next’ innovation.

Layout

The assignment must have a cover pages with the title of the assignment, student name and ID.

Use the following format & presentation:

- Times New Roman

- Size 12 font

- 1.5 line spacing

- Left aligned

- Normal margins (2.54 cm)

- Number all pages

Students must have four headings as outlined earlier to indicate the different sections of their reflection,

such as 1) Purpose, 2) Significant Learning Experiences, 3) Implications for Career, 4) Assessment of

Learning Choice.

Important note: All points or aspects of the layout not specified above are left to the student’s

judgment to ensure the professional presentation of the reflective journal.

Submission Format and Process

The assignment must be submitted electronically via turn-it-in through the Online Submission Folder

on the course Blackboard site. Files submitted as email attachments will not be accepted.

Format: Word File ----- NO PDFs

ALSO – Students need to submit their Mendix App created as part of the WIL project.

Name of the app: Student ID (8 digits) and first and last name. No spaces, use underscore. For example,

“44191384_Michael_Smith” and also see screenshot below. Facilitators will help you with naming the

app in the seminar.

To submit your app you need to add a marker as your team member:

1) Go to the Mendix platform

2) Go to Developer Portal and select on the left side COLLABORATE there select Team

3) Now you can invite team members. Click on the blue button that says “Invite member" (see 1st

screenshot)

Marking Process with a focus on the Mendix App

The marking of the app is based on the implementation of the client's requirements of the app.

Throughout the semester, these requirements are elicited and clarified. Because each student is part of a

development team and each development team has a dedicated teacher, an ongoing understanding of

how the student progresses with the low-code development is achieved. Furthermore, students will be

given the opportunity to showcase their apps during the seminar time in Week 12 or Week 13.

Because the reflection essay is about past experiences, students who did not experience the entire lowcode

learning are not able to write their reflective essay. Thus, we expect that each student develops a

unique app from a Blank app or tailored another app template so that it works in Mendix Studio (publish

the app) and addresses the client’s requirements.

Students who do not have an app or did not submit an app are given the opportunity to create their app

and are required to submit their app as part of the assignment’s submission process. When the app does

not implement the requirements (data model, advanced GUI features, workflows) students are given the

opportunities to include them and resubmit their app.

Until the requirements of the clients are satisfactorily included in the Mendix low-code app, late

submission penalties apply.
