Abstract

This paper presents critical reflection as a tool for transformative learning. Transformative learning enhances both individual and group consciousness towards job interviews. A student faced with a series of failures in job interviews, approached the author for advice, so that a transformation in the way he faced interviews may take place. Self reflection with the assistance of the author resulted in success in the next job interview as well as developing a case study. This case study was used for enhancing group (of students) consciousness towards job interviews. This paper starts with a brief introduction followed by objectives and methodology and presents a case study through which group consciousness is enhanced. The data analysis is done using scatter plots and chi-square test and the results indicated that there is a significant increase in 4 tested parameters viz., performance in HR interview, technical interview, communication and confidence.

Keywords: learning, self reflection, consciousness, visual analysis
