The impression of reflecting on what I have learnt over the preceding weeks are often frustrating struggle for me since I habitually contend that I have learnt nothing! Though, incredible that I suppose I might not comprehend that I am actually learning and altering my judgments and philosophies on materials of any significance. Being conversant with the new originations and thoughts often necessitate a great deal of reading, writing, group work and active participation on module forums which can construct a bit of intellectual reluctance but also ask probing questions for the purpose of learning activities. Irrespective in the end, I recognize that I have learnt because I have proficient new ideas, thoughts and intuitions to new tools, technologies …show more content…
I for one person who comes with no business background but wish to venture into the world of business as an entrepreneur owning a pharmacy business after completing my Masters in Business Administration degree. When I started off with this unit Developing the Professional I had described myself as a person with a circular shape. The reason for identifying myself as a circle is because I am a person who tries to make sure that all activities around my reach are accomplished well before time and make sure that all the people within my environment are able to feel my presence as I tend to have lot of empathy and consideration for others feelings. This nature is the result of my nurturing and the hard work of my parents who have prepared me to be the person I am at present. Also the career of the pharmacist and few years of community practice have helped me develop empathy and consideration for one and all where I am provided with the ability to understand their situations. All shapes have their own advantages and disadvantages which an individual has to work on to improves on where need arises. For me the advantage of being a circle is that I always try to make the world go round if not round than I still try and make thing work out for people just because of our loving nature which is able to influence others, therefore I tend to treat everyone around me equally. Circular personality comes with few drawbacks and my major pitfall is that due to my considerate and empathetic nature people are able to take advantage of my decision making skills be manipulating me and having decisions ruled out their way. There are ways which can help minimize this manipulative decision making by letting those people know that no matter what my
Before entering this class I thought I was a well written writer, although as I continued to come to class and work on assignments I then had realized I could use alittle improving. Writing seems to come very naturally for me because I write all the time. I tend to write poetry to express what i 'm feeling at times, it is how I ventilate what it is that I am feeling. So when thinking about topics it is not very difficult for me due to the fact that most of the time I know exactly what it is I would like to write about. Taking this class has showed me how to be a more effective writer and a more effective researcher.
Lani: I was helping for someone’s project for COMM 245; I was in the video lab, in the studio. I was on campus and decided to contact everyone I knew who comes to the school. I remember I sent out a snap saying guys I think there is a shooting, be careful and then I started sending out individual texts to people making sure they were okay, like hey are you good? Stay out of an area.
My body cried like a newborn babe, afraid in an unfamiliar place. Immediately, my fresh eyes were greeted by waves of black hair, friendly smiles, and the Japanese language. I had arrived in Japan. I did not know the language or the customs, but I dove right into the dark pool. I was determined not to let the unknown drown me.
It was a taciturn gloomy morning, the year of 1862. The 12th of September. At the end of it, I might be with my family again or buried someplace underground. It was my time to go into battle as soon as I finish saying goodbye to my loved ones. The tears slid down my wife’s face and my daughters lingered into their mother’s arms to cover their dripping faces.
“Set,” Bang! The gun goes off and I quickly shoot ahead of the rest of the field. My strides long and quick as I sprint for the track. I can’t hear anyone behind me, I must be a good 10 meters in front of everyone else. I run around the track and continue to sprint across the field back to the crowd of parents, friends, and girls soccer players who were forced to attend this last cross country meet of the season.
At the beginning of my sophomore year, August 2015, I fractured my left ankle. My second season of cross country had just begun. The whole team had a Saturday practice at Atlanta Memorial Park. We came to this park for a time trial. Not being able to run was going to be a challenge for me.
Every Moment Counts I hug her knowing that this will be our last. Tears are streaming uncontrollably down my cheeks, staining her shirt. I'm not ready to say goodbye. I don't understand why this is happening. Out all of the 7.28 billion people in the world, why did it have to be her?
Introduction In this reflective essay I will reflect upon the course based on the assignments and projects I have accomplished this semester. Recent research (Kornblith, 2012:3) identifies that reflection is an active process and making sense of the experience through the understanding of one’s actions. As suggested by (Roberts, 2011:63) she states that the understanding of reflection have been used to develop an action stage, which can further help to improve my skills and knowledge towards my course. This is vital as it ensures that i get the most out of my learning experience and i could use them to their maximum benefit.
There is no exact definition of the word learning, and in fact it is quite difficult to specify. An appropriate means of defining learning is “a process through which individuals acquire and assimilate new knowledge and skills that result in relatively permanent behaviour changes” (Morley et al 2013). With this in mind, it is evident that there are numerous interpretations upon which these opinions vary with the individuals’ personality and their unique learning style. However, one does not only learn information in a formal environment such as at school or in the workplace as we are constantly learning, sometimes even unintentionally. The mistakes we make teach us new lessons and skills.
The first half of this semester was swift and I can’t believe how fast it passed by. College is a whole new world for me that I had never imagined with a lot of new experiences that I hope will shift me into a better and smarter person. There are more things I can do in college that I would have never dared to do in high school and I am happy for these new freedoms. I am able to eat in class, leave class without asking and they don’t care if I pay attention or not. My high school teachers would always tell me to wait for the bell, sometimes would not let me leave and if I did not pay attention they would yell.
This required a lot of self-management and self-reflection for the assessment of the module. It required that a blog is up kept every week for self-reflective purposes. Dewey (1991) had defined reflection as active, persistent and careful consideration of any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the grounds that support it and the further conclusion to which it tends which essentially highlights that this helps learning and therefore is highly
Although it is important to learn new things, the new material learned is not as important as the process of learning itself. In the process of learning, one’s mind is transformed and engaged. They will be introduced to new things and their ideas and thinking will be changed forever. When learning new things, seeing the value of things become
This can be generally applied to other aspects of my life that require learning large amounts of information. Building your knowledge with previous information as a foundation would probably be much easier than learning a completely new concept without connecting it with old
