IHP 501 Journal Guidelines and Rubric
Overview: Successful professionals need good reflective and writing skills, and journal activities offer you the opportunity to further develop these skills. The journal assignments provide you an opportunity to focus on how you can advocate for global health and policy in your current or future role as a health professional. You will submit journal assignments in Modules One, Three, Seven, and Ten. Approach each journal assignment as an opportunity to reflect upon and apply what you learned from the assigned readings, discussions, and activities, incorporating any knowledge or expertise you have based on past educational and professional experiences. Prompt: When completing journal assignments, articulate your insights and ideas in a professional manner. This journal assignment does not require references; however, if you do use references, use proper APA formatting. You should also use language appropriate for a health professional and provide annotations to clarify as necessary (e.g., with use of company-specific acronyms). Journals are private between the student and the instructor.
Rubric Guidelines for Submission: Submit assignment as a Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.
