One of my classes my first at NC State demonstrated this. In COS 100 there is a semester long group project. Having partners who care about their education was a welcome change of pace from previous experience and made the experience enjoyable. I experienced a similar situation in CH 101. Additionally, COS 100 makes the case that working together and communicating is the best way to advance the sciences. Being a passionate fan of science, I now support more collaborative efforts. I am also doing undergraduate research with the Statistics department here at NCSU. This more than anything else shows me how powerful a group working together can still be after first seeing it during my Order of the Arrow Ordeal many years ago. I have definitely gained a healthy respect for the power of group effort. I don’t consider much lost except that of a very polarizing, standoffish
My group always focused on their roles and contributed as much as they could. As soon as we got into our group, everyone would start to talk excitingly about the book. When we were answering questions most of us would answer unless someone else had already said what we were about to. I did not have a single problem with my group.
The process of reflection is central to clinical supervision. Launer (2003) describes external and internal factors in supervision whereby clinical practice and sharing skills are external and reflection is an ‘internal conversation.’
As with any type of group work, disagreements are likely to surface; but that’s why I have experience managing large groups of people and dealing with problems and complicated ideas. If needed be, I will step up and make myself useful, whether it is in a classroom setting, a lab, or the workplace. I am also determined to work side-by-side with people who have the same fascination with academics and who want to see the same change in the world as I do; but first, I have to start by graduating from
My small group experience was back in Secondary School where I was part of my school’s National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) Cadet Leaders’ committee. The group lasted for approximately two years. Within the two years, we have meetings every fortnightly. This committee is a task group in which all members worked together to carry out activities for the school’s NPCC unit. The Cadet Leaders’ committee comprises of 10 members. The membership composition includes, chairperson, deputy chairperson, Head of training, Head of administration and the rest were members. I was the deputy chairperson and my role includes co-facilitating meetings, planning along with organising camps and training.
I believe my group worked well together as a team by incorporating Team STEPPS and ensuring that each member of the team was contributed equally. Reflective practice has allowed for issues to be identified, this has allowed for improvements in future practice. This is because this assignment has allowed for me to incorporate Team STEPPS and will assist in the future whilst working with other health care professionals as a team. When reflecting on group work, it was difficult to find a time for each member of the group to meet up for a meeting prior to filming the video and to film the video. This was because each member has their own schedule, and it was difficult to line our schedules up. It was important to ensure that all members of the team could attend the meeting and filming day. This is because as Team STEPPS outlines that is important that members of the team understand other roles and collaborate to allow for improvements (Manion & Huber 2014, p.143). It was important that all members of the team were collaborating equally and evenly to ensure that each member was sharing their ideas. To allow for this issue to be addressed it was important to use a Team STEPPS approach this was by ensuring that the team was working together to ensure that everyone contributing and each team member’s strengths and weakness were highlighted (Foley & Murray 2017, p.130). Prior to starting filming
Elements of Yalom’s therapeutic factors were apparent over the course of the semester while experiencing and conducting our breakout groups. Yalom refers to 11 therapeutic factors in the practice of successful group therapy with them being: installation of hope, universality, imparting information, altruism, corrective recapitulation of primary family, development of socializing techniques, imitative behavior, interpersonal learning, group cohesiveness, catharsis, existential factors. Below, will be a reflection of my experience in the group over the course of the semester.
Reflection is a part of daily process of learning and thinking. As stated by Jasper, (2003), the reflection is “…the way that we learn from an experience in order to understand and develop practice”. It is useful in dealing with challenges and can be used as a tool for personal and professional development. Moreover, a convoluted process of writing experiences and learning from any event and understanding of its usefulness in future is, defined as Reflective writing. The theoretical model which is often used as a framework for reflective writing was created by Professor Graham Gibbs (1988) and is known as Gibb’s reflective cycle. Gibbs’s reflective cycle has 6 phases.
In this individual reflective report, I will discuss how the Consulting Project course gave me opportunities to experience, explore and evaluate the real-life business case, how it strengthen my practical business knowledge, problem solving and leadership skills, and how the learning process will support my personal development goals. To help structure my reflective report, I will apply the Kolb’s model of reflection which we learned from the LPDCM course. This model is also known as learning through experience, described through the Kolb’s Learning Cycle:
I have been dancing for four years now and know for a fact that dancing is a sport. Dancers practice everyday to improve like other sports. I have danced before but it was not as serious until I joined Color Guard my freshman year. Color Guard was mainly contemporary and ballet. I was really stiff at the time due to the fact that I had only have done hip-hop and hard-hitting dances. When my first season was over, I came to love contemporary and ballet more than hip-hop and hard-hitting dances. My sophomore year, I became a squad leader with only season's worth of experience in guard. Color Guard is during the fall which is when we are with the Marching Band. Winter Guard is during the spring and we are by ourselves performing in the gym, I started off in Winter Guard. My first season was
My assignment for the writing 101 group project was to present how to conduct an interview. The information for this presentation came from The Curious Researcher by Bruce Ballinger. My group consisted of five people, we all would present this topic together. Knowing that we had a big group for a relatively small presentation, we had to divide the groups roles up very evenly so everyone could participate. This was the first thing we did as a group. We split the actual presentation of how to interview among four members. The four parts of the presentation included finding experts, finding non-experts, conducting an interview and email interviews. The fifth member was in charge of creating and conducting the in class activity that followed the presentation. When this process concluded, I was given the role of delivering how to do an interview over email.
I believe we worked well as a group even though we were not working directly with each other. This helped me understand as to how a group effort can involve more than one set of people. While we were Luckyday volunteers they included us into their group of everyday workers. The work was completed by the entire team. Not one person received more credit that the other. It could not have been completed without the entire until of people.
As with any endeavour, we faced some initial setbacks. With this being our first college team assignment, we were all treading on unfamiliar territory. At our first few meetings, team building was key. In an effort to overcome the initial shyness, we took the time to understand and get to know our fellow team members; in doing so, establishing a welcoming and encouraging environment for everyone to share their ideas whist too ensuring everyone felt appreciated. Getting the team to gel was essential for the team to get results.
In this Capstone I learnt from it that is not only work in the individual it also works in a team or a group of people to encourage us to solve challenging problems, think critically and develop skills. For example, build a good relationship, well-communication, planning, research skills, media knowledge, public speaking, teamwork, self-confidence, target setting and so on. Competitive strategy is a strategy that develops student focusing on emerging understanding and the dynamic of an industry which is local issues. A process of reproduction, reflection and experiential learning are enhanced within solve problems, decision making, analysis of general critical, capabilities of creative thinking and so on. All of these will help us in our future
In order to prepare for our group facilitation exercise, my colleague and I sat together for the first time in class to plan and discussed our understanding of what we thought was expected of us. According to (Corey, Corey & Corey, 2010) if group facilitators are prepared, they are more likely to be able to effectively open up members for a meaningful group experience. We agreed that I would open the group and my colleague would close the group. In addition, we would share and support each other for the time in between. Our aim was to have equal
