Self-map reflects my nationality, interest and my personal view of time. It is a good activity which shows my optimistic, and how i like to try hard things to develop my life skills.

About the future self-portrait map it shows my goal and plan of my future career, therefore, it is a important item to enhance me to make a good life planning.

  2. In this self map, I chose the cover page of as the concept map, as that is my favorite novel which also can represent my dream job—novelist. Furthermore, the main character of this book have similar personality to mine (introverted). Then, I chose a building in QUT as the place map, since I studying in QUT. A watch as time map, the reason why I use a watch is that I start to collect watch recently. I have a lot of classmates who are studying in different countries—New Zeal-and, USA, UK. And my families are in China. So that, I set those watch in different time zone, which can remind me my friend and my families. Finally, a black plastic glasses as self symbol. Clearly, the reason is I wearing this kind of glasses.

  3. To look back this semester, I have done some creative work which I did not know before. The works chose to shown above illustrate the reason why I decide to study creative industry.
    For self map, the concept show the things I like–I like books and writing.
    For the video, it indicate what is the important thing I should do to achieve my dream–read
    For assessment, I select the first part of the creative work(a blog article), which is a poem. It represent what practice I done for achieving my ideal job.
    For the reflection, I chose the conclusion, as my inspiration and passion can be shown in this paragraph.
    Although the work above show different things, they are all relative to one thing–I want to be a writer.
    About the my personal and learning journey this semester, I have to these 13 weeks are amazing. I have experienced something very interesting, which I did not know before, as I study mathematics, Chemistry and physics in high school. Also, because of the education system in China, we did not have much creative work to do, even if your major is music.In university, I finally can do something I be passion of and I can use the thing I love most all the time–imagination. So the creative work obviously is my favorite part in this semester. The reason is that I can show my imagination(idea) through my first poem and blog article is what I love and have write them for a long period. Moreover, the class and homework I have teach me how to use imagination well and to organza ideas. At the same time, I also have another improvement–be more confidence. Since we have explain our work in the first few work and I have to hand in my article for assessment 2, which are the things I scare of most before, since I am a introverted person. Even though I think I have improvement, I still lacking something important–writing skills which have strong impact on the work I hand in.
    All in all, I enjoy all the class and homework I have this semester. They expand my horizon, help me to have improvement for my dream, let me experience something new and interesting. Although I am not professional enough to be a writer, I believe I will achieve my dream someday if I keep working hard.

  5. Based on the assessments that I have chosen to reflect on my learning journey, I have selected these few assessments, this is because these are the assessments that I’ve felt to have a deeper understanding of my own personal values and judgements. In addition, from these assessments I have realised my weaknesses and strengths that I have in this course and it has caused me to make more improvements for the skills that I have lack. These assessments have represented my learning journey for this subject in terms of making me a better informed person of my future career. It has taught me to understand the risks that I have to be prepared to take in this industry as well as the alternative occupations I can relate to if my current dream job did not work out. Hence, I do think this subject is important for creative industry students to have a clear view before they pursue whichever career they are going in.

  6. I have selected these assessments to reflect my learning journey because all these assessments have contributed to either my future career or my self-development. Especially, I have gain more understanding of my career orientation which can release my sense of helpless. Many times I did these assessment I felt confused. Because it seems everyone knows what they should do and have the confident to do it well. And I am just confusing my choices all the time. “Am I choosing the right major” or “Is that really what I want to do?” After struggling for a long time, I am figuring all the puzzles out through these assessments. And now I understand. Many things we just do it for no reason and enjoying the process is just what we need. I have really benefit from all these processes not only it helped me a lots in my future career studying, but also because all these works highlights my study in QUT and make me becomes a successful and passionate person in either study or daily life.

  7. The five items that I choose are Self-map, One second a Day, Word Clouds, Future Self Portrait Map and Multi Modal Reflection. The reason I choose self-map is because it can really tell who I am and what I am thinking such as my personality, my values and my beliefs. Self-map helps me to discover a little bit more about myself such as I have always been value freedom and unconditional love and self-map helps me to sit down and brainstorm all about my thoughts. I choose one second a day video is because it tells how I can be inspired or receive inspiration throughout my daily activities. It also helps me to realise which activity provides me more opportunities to be inspired as well. Word Clouds is one of the beautiful and fun things I have made and the reason of choosing it is because I think the website is very professional where we can put all the words and create a word cloud with many beautiful styles. It also lists out all the key terms in my reflection which talks about my past, future and present as well. Future self-portrait map is a very fun activity to do because it helps me to redefine what and where I can imagine myself be within 5-10 years. Multi Model Reflection helps me to reflect what happened within this semester and what I learned from this semester and that is why I choose this item. All of the items really represent my journey over this semester because they all show my identity, personality, values and beliefs. By looking at these 5 items, I can tell that I have grown up a lot since then and these five items helps me to reflect on my past, present and future and also helps me to become a better person and identifies my future direction clearer.

  8. To look back in this semester, i have learnt many things about creative, not ever only from school, for example my friend who is also study in CI we have discussed about our different major which have different creative requirement. Creative is not only about new idea but something different.

    The reason the chose those 5 items is because those are the most valuable for me that i have spent time on it, also those 5 items i have selected are able to assist me to my future career goal. As my aim is to being a cinematographer, i must first learnt to understand the skills of video editing, in assessment ‘one second a day’ i have learnt how to use window movie maker to make my own video, even though it is not a professional software for filmmaker but it was still a good start. Furthermore, in assessment 2 i am able to understand how to perfect a film by writing a movie review, it is because as a audience i am able to tell what is lack of and good in those movie, and for a filmmaker who have listened to a film review is able to improve and hook and audience as well as match what do they need to get a better grade of result.

    In Brief, i chose those 5 items because they can all assist me to achieve my career goal.

  9. I selected the self-map, one second a day, creative work, assessment 2 reflection and post reflection on assessment 2 to represent my journey. The reason that makes me to choose these reflection items is I think these items can help me to know more about myself. Many people though that they know everything about their self, but the fact is not. Some of them don’t know want they really want, they just follow the rules and everyday routine. I think I am lucky because I know what I want and what I am going to do, therefore my goal is always the same. No matter what obstruct happen on me, it just makes me getting more and more strong and never give up. These items are always a reminder to remind me what I should do in the future.

It can also help me to know more about myself. Secondly, I choose my one second a day because it can help us to know how we can obtain the ideas or inspiration during our daily lives, it can also let me to know where I need to improve and where I need to retain. Thirdly, I selected my assessment 2 reflection, because I collected the paper cuts and research the information about my essay for a long time. That was hard but really exciting. Fourthly, I choose my creative work, which is my best line, because I have known how to research some pictures to reflect the useful information to the people. Finally, I choose the post reflection on assessment 2, because to obtain the knowledge from past experience is really important for students. Actually, I am not good at writing. I need to focus on writing and work harder in the future.

  11. Looking back on the whole semester, I did experience and study a lot from this course. The reason why I selected these 5 items including Self Map, One Second a Day, Creative Work, Assessment 2 Reflection and Post Reflection on Assessment 2 is that they seems like a progressive process to make me keep reflecting myself and get a deeper understanding about myself. The video of One Second a Day documented my present and reminds me what I look like at this period of time. The creative work is a series of small goals which leads to be successful. Assessment 2 and its reflection reveal my ambition and my plan to achieve it. Self-Map shows my dream destination and place. As a result, these 5 items represent the journey of my life.

Form this semester’s learning, I have contributed to my future career and myself development. The most important is that, I found the stage to show my personal value. Before, I did not know what I am really interested in, what I want to do in the future. According to these five items. I showed my habit, my life with my friends, my working experience when I was in China, and my future goals, which I set to myself. No matter how hard they are, I never give up my dream. I believe that, my study at QUT will help me to achieve successful.

  15. I have chosen to write about my Self Map, Creative Work, Assessment 2 reflection, and Future Self Portrait Map. My Self map reflects my future career and one thing that I noticed here is that I realized that creating self-map can be a source of motivation when I feel lost or not knowing what I would be doing for my future career. I can always look back at my self-map and be able to know what the next step is for me to get there. The creative work that I worked on has given me a chance to get started, since there always going to be good results when I start working on something that I like to do and I would never regret doing so. Reflection on my assessment 2 is about what kept me going and I think it is essential to have the necessary motivation, resources that can enhance my story and finally my own creativity used so that I can move forward with the work as the work is not going to get done if we do not take the next necessary step or action that has to be taken.

  16. Those 5 items i selected are relevant with me closely. Generally, those 5 items show that things we learnt in this semester and the process of my development. Self-map is a good way to help us to understand ourselves, as well as One second a day taught us our daily life is a store of creative ideas. In addition, we did practice writing reflections through Self-map and One second a day, then, we wrote the first reflection during assessment 2. Assessment 2 is a creative work and it is a stage for us to reveal our creative ideas. The last one is Post Reflection on Assessment 2, it helped us to find mistakes in our reflection and provided an opportunity to improve. Hence, I did get improvement on writing a reflection, and i also realized what my strengths and weakness are through these 5 items. To conclude, these 5 items will help me in future study.

  17. Semester two is finally over, and it’s time to look back over the assessment that I chose for this reflection. I believe that these assessments were the ones who brought me to my understanding what have I been missing for these last few years. It keeps reminding what are my vision and mission as well as my strengths and my weaknesses throughout. This assessment has made me realize that I have come far from the start of semester 2 and made me know better about what am I going to take for the future. Michelle and Henri did a great job creating some activities that has a purpose behind it. Because, an activity without the purpose is like a dead activity. I’ve realised what are my vision and my goals as well my strengths and weaknesses that is useful in my future studies.

  18. As a whole semester draws to a close, I tend to think back on how my overall performance was throughout the semester. Luckily, because of this subject, the assignments and reflections we had to do was in some form of a journey timeline. We could look back at our first assignment and compare to how much we have grown from it. To reflect on my journey, I choose 5 assignments to choose from which were the Self-Map, One second a Day video, a sample of my creative work, assessment two reflection and a post reflection of assessment two. Each one of these assignments challenges us in different ways. For example, the self-map helps us recognize who we personally are and who we want to be in the future. The one second a Day video allows us to be open with everyone by sharing our point of view of our daily lives to one another. The creative work was able to expand our creativity, the sky is the limit by allowing us to create whatever we want. The assessment two reflection enables us to look back on our creative work and feel a new form of confidence as we are proud of what we have achieved. The post reflective ties everything down together, through this we were able to look through how much we have progressed from the first week of class to week ten.
    Being in Creative People and Practices was definitely a experience I would not forget as it helped me to become a better person than I was yesterday.

  19. Look back this semester, I believed the most meaningful assessment would be Self Map, Word Cloud, Reflective Journal, Post reflection of assessment 2 and Future Self Portrait Map. Firstly, Self Map clearly represented my personality, major and my thoughts. It gave me a chance to know better of myself and correct mistakes by presentation. Word Cloud was an interesting assessment as it required my imagination to present an ordinary work through a creative way by using visual aids. Reflective journal was the most important part of my assessment, it ensured my understanding of future careers and some vital skills to achieve being a successful architects. Post reflection of assessment 2 was needed as well because it helped me to confront my mistakes and limitations, and provided a better understanding of myself in study. Future Self Portrait Map was a blueprint of my future career; it assisted me to plan my study in the future and the development of my job. To sum up, these five selections provided me a deeper understanding of myself through personalities and future planning, and these are what I need as an architect. Therefore, these five pieces of assessment are essential.

  20. I have chosen those five selections, the self-map, the sample of assessment 2, assessment 2 reflections, word clouds and multi modal reflection. Those five selections could present my journey of this semester, which started with the simple creative self- map to the sample of assessment 2 –perspective drawing and finally learning how to interpret others creative work. Firstly, the self- map could arouse my creativity in order to assist me to complete my perspective drawing, which is mostly related to my future development. Furthermore, through completing the word clouds activity and the assessment 2 reflective paragraph, I could investigate what have I improve and how do I deal with the challenge such as the drawing angle. Consequently, the multi modal reflection guides me to interpret other’s creative work and observe more things that surrounding me. And through the reflection portfolio, I know more about my design value, which is using the simple element to construct my creative work. I believe those five selections would lead me to a better future development.

  21. The self-map, one-video-a-day, creative work, and assessment 2 reflective assignments have illustrated my emotions towards my vision for the future. I was initially blind for my future and I had hard times missing my home country. I was not even sure of which major I should take for my bachelor. Through all these assessments, I have dug myself deeper. I become more aware of what my values are. I also recognize that my friends in this subject have also experienced both confusion and enjoyment. They realize me that I am not alone. I know that doubt always takes part in everyone’s journey. Hence, I have tried to find a passion that can cast my doubts away. I have realized that I want to share more happiness to this world. I want to make people happy through my artwork. I want to make legendary films or motions. Breathing may keep me living, but expressing myself through this industry is what makes me feel alive. I want to be alive. I need to be alive. It is the only certain thing I know about myself. This passion has led me to become more confident in taking Film and TV Industry as my bachelor degree.

  22. This semester was the first semester of my university life. It was excited and confused. I made many mistakes because I always miss the information that teacher told us due to my hearing problem. But I already had known more about the structure and operating of university through this semester.

    In this unit of people and practices, I finished several homework and assessments and I got different experiences and acknowledges. The first homework of this unit was Self Map, which was my first time of contacting with creative industry. I did not know what to do and I was not satisfied with the result. I considered working harder and paying more attention on my study. Another homework was One second a Day. I made a video according to the model video. However, when Michelle played others homework videos, I found that others are much better than mine because their videos were more creative. This was the first time I realized the importance of creation in creative industry. I faced a huge challenge when I did the homework of Mood Board. Since I had not skills of Photoshop at all, I have encountered many difficulties. What I mostly enjoyed about the assessment was Creative Work. I made a 3 minutes video about my major, interior design. In the production process of this video, I learned a significant amount of information about what am I going to do in the university. In addition, I learned much more information in the last assessment of Career Development Portfolio. Through many research, I learned a plenty of acknowledge about interior design not only what will I do in the university, but also how to do my job and how to build my career. This information is very useful for me to have a clear understanding of my future.

    In conclusion, I really enjoyed this unit even though it was difficult. This semester helped me understand more about my future and myself. In the next semester, I will try my best to achieve my further goal.

  23. The items that I selected were the ones that had most impact in my studies through the semester. To begin with during the construction of the self-map I had the opportunity to review the person that I am today and who I want to became. In addition, I reinsured my dream and now I’m sure that I made the right choice coming to Australia in order to pursue them. The assessment 2 was extremely important; it was when I had the chance to work on something that in the future could be my job. I was very happy with the results of all assignments, though I don’t have many drawing and photoshoping abilities, I was glad that I had the opportunity to explore myself and my values in this subject during the semester.

  24. The first semester is almost finished. I have select five items that self map, future self map, creative work and assessment 2 reflection. firstly, I chose self map because it really shows who i am. It is my first time thinking about myself and write down it. In addition, future self map could help me learn more about my future career, that is why i uploaded this item. Therefore, I believe that those five items could develop my creative skills in the future.

  25. In my future, I will work for PR firms in Brisbane to gain the experience and knowledge to learn how to plan and organize a successful event. I think I will spend 5 years working in Brisbane to achieve my purpose. After 5 years being a PR event planner, I hope I have built the network for myself and learn how to improve the skills of communication with the media relations and community relations. These are important relationships to build in my future, because it can help me to create an successful event with maximum exposure of the event. I hope I can use event to bring happiness to the city, such as Brisbane River Festival, Ekka, Moon Cake Festival, and so on. And also, I will plan to back to Malaysia with my knowledge, skills, experiences, and favorable relationships between my working colleagues and me to develop my power of event creation. Therefore, I feel passion in learning how to be an event manager to influence the life of the people.

  26. The reason why did I select self-map, one second a day, creative work, assessment 2 reflection, post reflection on assessment 2 to be my five items is simple. It is because we have only did these five items in the class and we have not do the other three items such as, word cloud, Future Self Portrait Map, Multi Modal Reflection in class.

    I believe these five items I chose can reflect my journey. About the self-map, my beliefs and thoughts were put inside. About the one second a day, some little things in my living were recorded. About the Creative work, I wrote a song which talked about my personal feeling. About the Assessment 2 Reflection, I mentioned about what makes me write a song. About the Post Reflection on assessment 2, I mentioned about what should I improvement next time when I write a reflection.

  27. Throughout this semester, I had doubts whether I would do Interactive and Visual Design for my major. After all the assessments and the reflections, I am now sure that graphic design is my passion. I chose to reflect on Self-map, One Second A Day, Assessment 2, Creative Work and Post Reflection on Assessment 2 because they are the ones that motivated me to make my decision. These assessments forced me to explore the visual design area and tested my knowledge about it. Moreover, these assessments will be useful for my career portfolio. I am now more aware of my own strengths and weaknesses in this area.

  28. I learned many interesting things while studying this subject. This will be helpful when I do my work. Also various actions were a chance to find out my dreams again. I found the video and Photoshop techniques. This will make to create a more diverse advertising I’m doing an advertising job. Also, many techniques have approached interesting to me because it was the first semester that. In particular, the last assessment was the occasion to see my dreams again. I learned much knowledge which I did not know before. It gives specific directions presented to me in a dream design.

  29. Throughout my journey towards the success of my career development in advertising and entertainment, a number of lessons and experiences have been learned both in and out of the classroom. I have come a long way up to this point where I could say that most of the goals I had set have been achieved given that I am now in university. I still have a long way to go, but my past serves as my motivation to become a successful advertising and entertainment consultant.
    many projects and volunteer activities I participated in enabled me to enhance my communication, interpersonal skills as well as my service to others. I have learnt that listening is a valuable skill, especially in my advertising and entertainment career. It enables one to capture the clients’ requirements and needs, thereby avoiding conflict. I also developed my leadership skills during my tenure as a student leader. These will be essential in the corporate world as I interact with other team members.
