Reflective inquiry allows for expansion in self-awareness, identification of knowledge gaps, and assessment of learning goals. Each week, you will reflect upon what you have learned and complete a reflective journal assignment: Reflection on Learning. Each weekly reflection is placed in one document, which will be submitted for grading at the end of Week 7. There is no weekly reflection in Week 8 because a reflection is incorporated into the discussion question. Create a document where you will keep your weekly reflection.

In your document, reflect upon your Week 1 learning journey in NR701 and consider the following in one or two paragraphs.

·  Provide one specific example of how you achieved the weekly objectives.

·  What did you learn from this week to challenge your beliefs or attitudes?

·  How will this knowledge improve your effectiveness as a practice scholar?
