Reflection On The Killer Robot
In this report, I’ll be discussing the process of creating and displaying a presentation on The Killer Robot case study, and reflecting on my efforts and development throughout.
The reflective model I have chosen to use is the Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle, as I believe it provides a great straight-forward structure into outlining the process and it assists in highlighting all areas, including the emotions felt during the procedure.
