Ortiz (1995) an Evans et al. (1998) present that knowing Students Development Theories can help higher education personnel (staff, faculty, and administrators) to provide better programs and services base on student diversity and particularities. Student Development theories generally fall into four broad categories, each of which represents different perspectives on the students: 1. Psychosocial Theories (Arthur Chikering and Linda Reisser, 1993) focus on the personal and interpersonal aspects of students ' lives as they accomplish various developmental tasks, or resolve the inevitable crises that
This statement explains why most students manage to attend college. They think that experiencing college is all they need to have a thriving career. The reason students further their education is to have an exceptional life-style. Everybody has plans for the future and everybody wants to accomplish their goals. For some, it is to attend college to secure their future in a reliable job, but for those students a college degree is not all they can depend on.
As Bradley Wiggins, a British cyclist, once said, “The changing of goals helps keep motivation fresh.” Similar to Wiggins, I have been experiencing burnout with regards to the academic goals that I made prior to attending Drexel University. For instance, when I started my academic career at Drexel, I was extremely motivated to attain academic excellence and to join community service-oriented organizations. Having been a student at Drexel University for the past four years, I have been able to accomplish most of those academic goals. As a result, I have been feeling lost as to what my next plan of action should be, which has been challenging my motivation to exceed in academia. Participating in this course has made me realize that I should create new goals, especially career-related goals, because I will soon outgrow these
As a student i realized the important of prioritizing my responsibility because of that i can develop my skill through challenges I encountered in a college life. Some of student know them responsibility being a college student in university. Educators develop their teaching skills not only because of experience but also to through their students. Kavale et aI. (2004) stated that students who have deficits in social skills often experience low self-esteem, loneliness, and peer rejection.
“The essence of intercultural education is the acquisition of empathy--the ability to see the world as others see it, and to allow for the possibility that others may see something we have failed to see, or may see it more accurately …” [From the Price of Empire] The above-mentioned quote has always been a constant reminder of the genesis of my interest in culture and education, an interest that now evolved into an aspiration and a pursuit for a career in the field of international education and development. I started as an exchange student in the early years of undergraduate studies in a small college town in Ohio- Ashland University as part of a sponsored program by the US Department of State. The grogram was supervised and monitored by a group of young graduates from Yale University, MIT, and Princeton University who were vigorous and highly intelligent displaying an impressive teaching expertise. I was particularly fascinated by their original and unique teaching methodology. I came to realize that education should be dominated by advanced concepts, assisted by effective teaching strategies, and reinforced by a global understanding that is essential for bringing out a greater social role from education.
CCD met a need, and provided me with some wonderful instructors and the opportunity to learn and gain valuable insight from my peers. Once I decided to complete my bachelor’s degree, Metropolitan State seemed the logical choice. After all, my degree from CCD would transfer. And yet I found out a few semesters before I planned to graduate that my degree would not transfer to Metro State after all. Now what, Lord?
Did I have support? Would I have a babysitter while in class? There are some key terms that I’ve molded into my daily lifestyle, passion, motivation, knowledge, communication, resourcefulness, accountability, creativity, and open mindness. The motivational aspect that I wanted to achieve was getting a college degree so that I may provide the biggest future for me and my daughters. I am hoping to improve my communication skills so that I may develop a bright future in my career, while also being able to communicate well in a professional setting.
Reflective Paper After finishing this course, I find that the topics concerning structure and components of schooling, and inequality in education are impressive. This reflective paper will include some new insights that I have gained from this course regarding the concept of schooling and what kinds of students that I will need to take care of in the future. A) Reflection on group discussions in class Structure and components of schooling At the very beginning of the course, we were encouraged to discuss and reflect on the importance of schooling, or in other words the importance of receiving education in schools, which I have never thought about. According to the lecture of “Structure and components of schooling”, and the guest lecture “The role of government in education”, education has spill-over effects which can create social benefits, such as improving standards of hygiene and health awareness. Education is also an equalizer for societies which enables students to gain upward mobility and success.
In the College of Education, there is a lot of value placed on ESE education. Many of my classes I have taken focus primarily on inclusion and the benefits of diversity. When I first started in the College of Education, this made me kind of scared at first. My thoughts were, “How am I going to make sure I accommodate all of students.” I became very overwhelmed with this thought, thinking that I would fail at providing what my students need. However, through my courses, as well as this course, I have learned so much with accommodation and inclusion.
John Clark M. Gepitulan MedLt-I Assignment November 16, 2017 Reflection of a Model of Research Paper Writing Instructional Materials for Academic Writing Course: Needs and Documents Analysis and Model Design The paper focuses on the writing activities for research paper making involving the syllabus, lesson plan, and existing textbook. The researchers wanted to test the available resources that they currently using in the class to see the effectiveness and the efficiency of using those instructional materials in their university. To get the data, the researchers conducted some procedures to describe the results through needs’ analysis, documentation analysis, interview and questionnaires. They used this to identify the areas
