Having a program theory can help understand the status of a program and can assist in identifying the type of evaluation that can be done and also if it is in the beginning of a program the design phase can use the program theory to ensure that preconditions for its success is put in place. It also helps in selecting the hypothesis to explore and measure in a systematic manner A sound program theory can help identify problems in the design whether in the theory of action or theory of change and help identify stages of implementation where monitoring and evaluation needs to be done by looking at critical aspects that are to be monitored with respect to inputs process outcomes and any key factors that may affect the outcome and to ensure that the program is working well and on track. It can also help identify key evaluation questions regarding the program. Thus, having a sound program theory will help us identify which part of the causal links failed and the reasons.
Abstract: Feedback is one of the crucial element of learning and achievement, but its outcome can be either positive or negative. Drawing on findings from program on implementation (POI) feedback forms of NABH, this paper reveals the extent to which effectiveness can be accurately measured and challenges many of the aspects and beliefs about feedback practices. The paper argues that the participants is in the best position to judge the effectiveness of feedback, but may not always recognize the benefits it provides.
There are probably as many definitions of critical thinking as there are critical thinkers. One of the requirements for effective critical thinking is the ability to develop useful and practical definitions of key concepts, in light of the perspectives of others and one’s own intellectual experiences. For our purposes here, let’s consider critical thinking to be the intellectual process of defining clear and manageable problems; acquiring unbiased, reliable, and valid information bearing on the problems; manipulating that information in creative and appropriate ways in order to develop new and different perspectives on the situation; and developing reasonable and practical action plans based on these analyses. Underlying all these activities
I trust that life is a learning experience and being able to perceive our own strengths and weaknesses can help us turn out to be better people in anything we do, regardless of whether it is certain capacities and abilities that can help accomplish our objectives or adverse individual ranges that need change. Knowing our self-better can help us to perceive and beat our personal weaknesses. In a personal context, individuals in their personal or professional life must also plan and consider what strategies will help them be successful and ensure their occupational survival. In regards to this, Callanan & Greenhaus, (1999) has noted in their research that employees must take more control of their careers and look out for their employability.
It is important to work in partnership with team members, colleagues and other professionals in order to enhance effective communication. Partnership provides more knowledge, encourages honest discussion and creates a better potential for productivity and efficiency. It is also important to work in partnership with individuals and their family members in order to understand the challenge they are faced with and provide a solution to that problem.
Improving my critical thinking skills overall I believe would help me to become a better more competent social worker in general. I have a few strong interpersonal skills verbal, assertiveness,
First of all, and possibly most obviously, is the fact that education allows people to have access to better jobs. The more education and training that a person has, the better suited they are to perform in better paying and more competitive jobs. Formal education also allows people to “cross boundaries between private and public spheres” (Stromquist, 2015, p. 313). This means that people will be able to be involved in both their private, domestic lives as well as the public life and society. Formal education also provides people with development of “knowledge, and, indirectly, the psychological dimensions of empowerment by increasing the students’ sense of self-esteem, efficacy, and future life aspirations” (Stromquist, 2015, p. 313).
you will find it easier to deal with friends, family or other folks around you. Once you see ways to make changes. Start reinforcing these changes by self-talking your way through the processes. Use positive underpinning choices regarding your behavioral patterns.
Another key factor to consider is what brings people to being interested in and having the willing to practice mindfulness when it comes to any emotional factors. Researchers have often suggested that there are indications that mindfulness improves emotion regulation by strengthening executive control functioning. There lies an importance in changing one’s relationship with their emotions in comparison to the basic reasoning of the actual emotions. The data is aiding the research field’s perception to becoming increasingly clear that improved executive control and emotion regulation is reliant upon an ability to adapt to and accept one’s emotional
At primary level of prevention, educational programs should be arranged at schools in order to make children capable enough, so they can explore their strengths and weaknesses so by enhancing their skills and improving their areas of need, they can build their future. Another strategy that can be used to enhance the positive self esteem in clients is by self analysis which can also be done through johari window. According to Luft & Ingham (2004), the johari window gives an influential lens into how others see us. (p. 255). By self awareness, client will be able to identify own strengths and qualities and in this his self-esteem can be improved.
By using these new set of skills, it will help me assist others in getting from where they are now, to where they want to be with their performance and with them making their own choices. By taking time to understand their situation and deeply listen to what they have to say as well as being fully engaged so that they can truly be understood will get me to that next level of being a better leader. This will create a sense of connection and comfort, fostering a climate of openness and trust with that individual. I will use “SMART goals” to develop a goal with high personal meaning and relevance ensuring that the goals are, in fact, the individual I am coaching. This will make some situations at work a whole lot easier to deal
Supervisors are expected to help their staff develop plans that will offer the best education for students. In fact, the goal is for supervisors to gradually encourage teachers to become more involved in the decision-making process. In these cases, it is evident all four teachers need some level of direction from their educational leaders to help them find resolutions for their respective problems. In case one, teacher Gerald Watson’s developmental level was very low. He needs the most preparation time and his skill level causes the highest level of concern.
