Progressive cultural reflection reportIn a critical incident report you are required to describe, analyse, evaluate, and reflect on an intercultural experience that has been particularly significant for you. It will help you grow in the skill of cultural reflexivity. Selection of the particular intercultural experience to be analyzed is very important – it should be specific, current, personal and important. It is not the magnitude of the event but the magnitude of the effect that it has had on you and the potential it has to shape you which determines whether an event or incident is ‘critical’ for you. Normally, the event or incident you select for this paper will be either a ‘high point’ or a ‘low point’ in your life and/or work experience (something involving your interaction with another/others). It will be significant enough to stimulate reflection, and substantive enough to connect theory with the experience. Examples of intercultural experiences you could choose:A guest speaker in class who’s story significantly impacted youA shared traditional meal with a person from a different cultureA visit to a cultural siteA developing cross cultural relationship with a college or clientFollow this format to prepare your CIR:1. Narrate the experience (~250 words): Describe the event or incident and its setting. Note who was involved and the sorts of communications between those involved. Describe the emotions that you sensed in others and those that you felt yourself. Be succinct, including only what is necessary, but at the same time, invite the readers into the story. Stick to who? what? when? where? Questions; avoid the why? at this stage.2. Analyse the context (~200 words): Think deeper about what happened, analysing key subterraneous dynamics at play. Consider interaction between cultures and the Australian social contexts might have been influential in how you perceived the experience (think about class, age, gender and sexuality issues, cultural forces, background information, etc)3. Engage with learning resources (~350 words): Draw on the range of academic writing (journals and books), culturally significant artefacts, news media, and modern electronic media used throughout this course to deepen your analysis of incident. Describe what have you learnt that would guide culturally intelligent human service provision.4. Conclusion (~200 words): Summaries the main points in your report. Offer a strong, thoughtful and respectful concluding statement that encapsulates your learning from this experience.
