You are expected to reflect on your own learning and provide in-depth analysis of the chosen topic. The key assessment criteria for your group project are the course learning outcomes. This means that you need to reflect on your learning in your group project with regard to each of the learning outcomes. A reflection on your own learning from the course, embedding it into the report, and ability to link it with the course learning outcomes constitute a key element of your assignment evaluation and marking.
