Clear, concise, and cohesive: all necessities of an argument. Matthew Sanders, a college professor at the University of Utah, writes in his online bio that he enjoys analyzing the ways of teaching and learning, which is exactly what Sanders does in his book. In Matthew L, Sanders’ book Becoming a Learner: Realizing the Opportunity of Education he argues that college is meant to develop a person into a greater being not to teach them job skills. To develop Sanders’ claim, learning is more than just retaining facts, he correctly aligns his rhetorical situation and uses elements of generative and persuasive arguments. These techniques can include new angles, appeals, storytelling, and many other strategies to influence its readers
During this course, Leading Lives That Matter, I was challenged by God, fellow students, and the readings pertaining to this course. Being this was my first online course at Regis University, I did not know what to expect. The different views and opinions from my classmates challenged my own outlook on life. This course helped me shape by life by looking more into God and my life as a whole rather than living in the moment. Values, aspirations, virtues, and vocations lead us to our future are the answers to “how we ought to live.” Being more open to interpretation and open to opinions, I realized throughout this course, what my true purpose in life was, leading a life that matters.
Educational philosophy and teaching styles are two aspects of adult learning that influence the teaching-learning transaction in colleges and universities. The educational philosophy can inform the educator with strategies and methods for implementing adult learning principles. Floyd (2010) described the importance of educators knowing their educational philosophy because self-examination and critical inspection of practices will create a consciousness of some unconscious beliefs that affect teaching practice.(1,2)
To develop competent skills in confidently managing aggression in patients with dementia and implement de-escalation or talk down techniques effectively, it is imperative to observe senior nursing staff as they deal with aggressive patients. Managing aggression in patients with Behavioural psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) can be very complex processes that require extensive experience to effectively and safely implement appropriate nursing interventions. Martin & Daffern (2006) state that mental health clinicians require confidence in their ability to work with aggressive patients, allowing the provision of therapeutic care while ensuring protection for themselves and other patients from psychological
Life course perspective is used in social science to help understand human development. It takes into account how a person grows and changes through life experiences. It looks at historical events as well as cultural changes that affect a person’ evolution over their life (The life course perspective, 2003-2018). Life course perspective states that there is complex interaction of social and environmental factors mixed with biological, behavioral, and physiological issues that define the course of a person’s life. Each stage in life exerts influences on the next stage, social, economic, and physical environments and they also have influences through a person’s life course. All these factors impact a person and the community (Richards, Picket,
Human development changes throughout a lifespan and those changes include, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional changes between birth and adulthood. This paper reflects my own personal changes and focuses specifically on the changes concerning both cognitive development and psychosocial development.
Houle further argues that continuing education must be based not only on content oriented goals of keeping up with the new development; it must also be designed to facilitate changes in life patterns or career lines. Accordingly, Fryer (1997) states that learning at the workplace will need to accommodate the needs and interests of a variety of stakeholders, including employees, employers, customers, government and providers. It will contribute to competitiveness, skills enhancement, employability and capacity to deal with
I was fortunate to be able to observe academic education of nursing students at DeSales University. This education was held in a classroom setting on Mondays and Wednesdays. My observation time was 16 hours in which I observed Alyssa Robertson prepare for class, prepare exams, give lectures, provide hands on education, assist students in learning, and provide support to students. I also observed many student interactions and learning techniques. The learners were NU 220 Pharmacology and NU 230 Therapeutic Nursing Interventions students. NU 230 Therapeutic Nursing Interventions was held in the morning on Mondays and Wednesdays from 09:00-11:30 and NU 220 Pharmacology was held after from 12:00-3:30pm.
One of the most analyzed theories in criminology today is the social learning theory. The social learning theory derives from the differential association theory by Dr. Edward Sutherland. The social learning theory of criminology says that individuals learn from the community around them. This happens in two ways by differential association and differential reinforcement. Differential association is the theory that individuals learn values and behaviors related with crime. Differential reinforcement is the fact that rewards and disciplines shape behavior.
Social learning theory is a theory related to classical and operant conditioning, which proposed by Albert Bandura in 1977. According to Albert Bandura, people are active agents in learning while they use cognition and social interaction in learning (Rogers, 2010). Albert Bandura considered that people are living in the environment, therefore, human behavior should be studied in social context rather than in laboratory (Bandura, 1977).
Learning is a change in behavior over time that is brought about by experience during training in educational encounter (Akubuiro and Joshua, 2003). Training as part of education, is the acquisition of knowledge, skills and competence as a result of the teaching of practical skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competences (Angel, 2007). Training helps the learner to acquire certain useful skills and develop critical mind for the learner’s self-development. Therefore, the knowledge that comes from training is more of knowledge of how to do or perform specific tasks. Thus, the
As a student I found that as I observed or taught my philosophy changed. I looked into other theories to see if I could build upon my existing knowledge and beliefs. Something that would assist me in the classroom and increase my ability to teach.
For example, after we have learnt this subject, we know that is not only about how the organization is working it also about how we establish an organization and how you manage your product or service within your skills, knowledge and experiences. All of these skills, knowledge and experiences are where that I could not get before.
The decision to return to school is a significant step for adult learners, particularly after a long absence from formal learning, and there are many factors in making that decision. Perhaps to develop or achieve professional goals, higher career status, professional security, or to personal goals, such as, seeking knowledge and new skills. As adult learners, they bring lived experiences and develop knowledge to the classroom, most are self-directed, goal oriented, therefore, have different ways in approaching learning and may require particular learning environments.
According to some researcher’s experiential learning theory (ELT) has been widely used in management learning research and practice for over thirty-five years. Building on the foundational works of Kurt Lewin, John Dewey and others, experiential learning theory offers a dynamic theory based on a learning series driven by the resolution of the dual tensions of action/reflection and experience/abstraction. These two dimensions state a holistic learning space wherein learning transactions take place between individuals and the environment.
