The main purpose of this report is to reflect upon the photographic group activity in which I had taken part. In this report, I am going to make use of the Gibb’s Reflective Cycle (1988) and discuss about the various challenges as well as rewards that I have experienced during the entire course of the group project in which I have taken part. Moreover, in the due course of my reflection report, I am going to make use of the Pacific techniques of having an adequate level of understanding in terms of performing in an integrated manner, that is in groups.
The Gibb’s Reflective Cycle was created by Graham Gibbs in the year 1988 with an attempt to provide a particular framework to the different kinds of learning and experiences an individual is making in his life (Sekarwinahyu et al., 2018).
Here the different stages of the Gibb’s Reflective Cycle through which I am going to reflect upon my experience:
In this context, it was me, who suggested the other members of my group to first express their point of views on each of the pictures clicked and then we can decide with a mutual consent that which description as interpretation about each of those pictures would be most appropriate.
Initially, I experienced a lot of issues in terms of managing the project well with the other members of my group. The key reason for this was that the other four members of my groups belonged to a different as compared to the kind of culture from where I hailed from. Hence, this created a huge difference in the viewpoints about each of the pictures we clicked. For example, one of the pictures clicked by a group member seemed to be totally a source of disappointment for me, that according to me had the potential to damage the reputation of Tobacco Factory, which we had captured, however, two other group members protested against my view point by depicting that here the reputation of the factory is not a matter of concern, our first priority here should be to protect the life of the numerous people, who would be consuming the tobacco produced by the factory in concern.
Furthermore, as per the Pacific World Views in terms of nursing staff, it is significant for a nurse to have clear idea about her own culture and then only he or she would be able to understand the culture of their client and will also be able to understand its difference from their own culture (Nanai et al., 2017). Thus, with the help of this group activity, I was also able to understand the culture of my group members, their view point on the concerned photography, and I think after proper analysis that the two group members point of view was more appropriate as compared to mine, when it comes to nursing practice. Furthermore, my view point was appropriate from the business point of view and not from nursing point of view.
Through this reflective report, it can be concluded that I should take part in more group activities, which will help me to understand the culture of others and thereby, I will be able to respect the culture of my client as a nurse.
